    Hi support,

    I want to use schedulerView using keyboard. All events should managed by keyboard. Is it possible?

    Like create,edit delete appointment.? If yes then how?

    One thing I have noticed that once focus set to schedulerview then using tab I can move through different appointments.

    But I got some problem with that. In my page there are another controls also, in XAML page all controls have given proper Tab Index and that all are working fine. Shift+Tab also working .

    Problem here is once I focused into scheduleView then not able to come back to another control. Using Tab or Shit+Tab I just move into schedulerView only.

    How can I come out from there?

    One more thing Can you give any example for create,edit and delete of appointment using keyboard.?

    How to navigate through day using arrow key?(Ctrl + right arrow key = next day). (Ctrl + left arrow key = previous day)

    Thanks

    Hi Hardik,

    If you press F2 it will automatically put the ScheduleView in edit mode. And with Enter you commit the change. But there is now way to switch the views using the keyboard.
    Also, there is inline typing function - when you select a time slot and start typing it automatically creates appointments.
    Please try this out and let us know if that works for you.

    Hello Hardik,

    The RadScheduleView's is a little greedy. Once it captures the focus it wouldn't release. I am sorry for the inconvenience that issue  may cause but we have already planned a fix for it so you could expect a better tab navigation for the servicepack. It may event be available in one of the internal builds but I can not give you an estimate for that.

    RadScheduleView has a list of commands you could use. For more commanding information about RadScheduleView you can check the following QSF example.

    You could easily listen for keys and execute the appopriate commands on the RadScheduleView to enable all actions you described.

    All the best,
    Pana

    Hello,

    Is the following issue resolved:
    "Problem here is once I focused into scheduleView then not able to come back to another control. Using Tab or Shit+Tab I just move into schedulerView only."

    I'm using Telerik controls for Silverlight version: 2013.3.1104.1050.
    Facing an issue that the RadScheduleView gets focused even after setting IsTabStop=False.
    And once this is in focus, tab or shift + tab does not take it off focus.
    Found that the following control is in focus every time:
    Telerik.Window.Controls.Primitives.RadUniformGrid => System.Window.Controls.ListBoxItem =>System.Window.Controls.Grid => System.Window.Controls.ContentControl

    If I remove the RadScheduleView from my view, tab navigation works perfectly.

    Please let me know a solution asap.

    Thanks,
    Blessy.
