Description Kenneth Brodersen 2015-06-08 07:00:28 UTC
This is an issue on devices with integrated DPAD

After opening a XF application the first page cannot be navigated using the hardware up/down/left/right buttons

Steps to reproduce: 
1) download and _deploy_ the project on a device with a physical keyboard (tested on
Intermec CN51) 
2) Open the application from the App Drawer
3) Wait for the first page to load

Observed behavior: 
The DPAD cannot be used for navigation. 

Expected behavior: 
The first "focusable" view on the page should receive focus after initialization

Similarly to 30891 and 30893, this is intended behavior and may be worth looking at in the future for platform specific functionality.
