After disabling a text item and then enabling it when a condition is met, I can no longer tab to that item. Is it not being recognized as enabled?

I am using

set_item_property(<item_name>,enabled, property_false);
set_item_property(<item_name>,visible,property_false); 


and then when a condition is met, I use

set_item_property(<item_name>,visible,property_true); 
set_item_property(<item_name>,enabled,property_true); 


Any ideas?

setting enabled to false automatically sets keyboard_navigable to false. Unfortunately setting enabled to true doesn't set keyboard_navigable to true. You have to do that yourself.


Also worth noting that setting visible to false automatically sets enabled to false.
