#1137 closed defect (fixed)

[patch][cla]Button widget doesn't accept focus when using the keyboard

Description

Using the keyboard to navigate to buttons is important from an accessibility perspective. However, the button widget and its subclasses don't seem to support this. I've tried this against the online tests from the latest build.

Furthermore it's rather complicated to customize the button widgets. Basically, we're having the same problems as mentioned in ticket #1086.
