Toolbar flatbutton keyboard accelerator

Found this issue when coding with TD3.1 PTF3.

I have a test app with a toolbar that contains only a pushbutton and a
datafield (see attached file).

I have set the keyboard accelerator for the pushbutton as the Enter key.
When data is typed into the datafield and the Enter key is pressed, the push
button is actioned (as expected)
However, when the pushbutton is clicked directly, any further attempt to use
the Enter key during data entry does not action the pushbutton (this is the
Unexpected behaviour)

This problem only happens when the pushbutton appearance is set to 'Flat
Look'. It behaves correctly the button appearance is set to 'Standard'.

The sequence I have used to determine this problem is this:

- Type a couple of characters into the data field, then hit Enter. The
button is invoked an a message box displays to show it was pressed. This can
be done any number of times.
- Click on the pushbutton. The message box comes up again, as expected.
- Now type data into the datafield again and hit Enter. Nothing happens!

- Now change the pushbutton appearance attribute to 'Standard' and repeat
the above sequence. It works this time....

Unfortunately, flat buttons are a desired feature in my workplace. Is there
any way around this? I had previously posted under the forum.td.development
area requesting help on this issue before I discovered that the problem was
related to the 'flat look' attribute, and have tried many options in
trapping the windows messages at the datafield, with no success.

A simple workaround, and it does the job perfectly!

Thanks very much,
Peter
