BB10: ActionBar Selection Poor?

Other than the back button that can be added to the ActionBar, has anyone else experienced the diffilculty in selecting a button in the ActionBar?  I have to select multiple times before I get an event.  Very inconsistent.  Seems like the hit area is not being defined correctly.

 

Bug?

Re: BB10: ActionBar Selection Poor?

If you add an image to the action class, selection is a lot better. This would be the normal situation. Having just a label is just not easy to activate the item. Still need to determine in how to give feed back to the user when the button is selected.

ActionBar items will have a pressed state in the upcoming beta release.
