    I am using radgridview from Q1 2008 SP1.
    The tab key was working till today afternoon, but now it doesn't work anymore.
    The tab key was automatically transferring focus to the next cell for editing, but it has suddenly stopped to behave  like this. Instead now the tab key simply ends the edit process for current cell but does not put the next cell into edit mode.
    May be someone has solved this issue.
    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated as I am on a very tight project deadline for this.

    Thanks

    I am using the following code to bind the grid.
    attributesRadGridView.Visible = true;
     
    attributesRadGridView.GridElement.BeginUpdate();
    attributesRadGridView.DataSource = null;
    attributesRadGridView.Refresh();
                                 
    attributesRadGridView.DataSource = ds;
    attributesRadGridView.DataMember = ds.Tables[0].TableName;
                    
    attributesRadGridView.Refresh();
    attributesRadGridView.GridElement.EndUpdate(true);

    I was able to solve the problem by setting the property 'StandardTab' to false. This property, when true, does not tab into the next field. It needs to be false for tabbing to occur in a manner that most people would think is standard behavior.

    Hello Sunil,

    I'm glad you found your answer, but as i just wanted to let you know that by default the StandardTab property is set to false, so that's the reason why it was working.

    Hope this helps, if you have any other questions or comments, please let me know,

    Best Regards,

    I was scratching my head today about whether the StandardTab property needed to be true or false in order to be able to tab to the next column.  And I see that other people seem to be having this uncertainty as well.

    A general problem with much of the RadGridView API documentation is that it is pretty much bare-bones, with little or no examples or descriptive text.  There is nothing at http://www.telerik.com/help/winforms/p_telerik_wincontrols_ui_radgridview_standardtab.html which lets you know the effect of setting StandardTab to true vs. setting it to false.

    There is a lot of good information available in the forums and in the general GridView link at http://www.telerik.com/help/winforms/gridview-overview.html .  But it's hard to discover this information, and much of it really should be in the API documentation itself so it can be found easily.

    Hello Ira,

    Thank you for contacting Telerik Support.

    The RadGridView.StandardTab property gets or sets a value, indicating whether the TAB key moves the focus to the next control in the tab order, rather than moving focus to the next cell in the control. So if you have several controls on the form and the RadGridView is currently focused, depending on this property's value, Tab key will navigate you to the next cell in the grid (StandardTab=false) or will navigate you directly to the next control (StandardTab=true) according to TabIndex.

However, the online documentation is not the only kind of resource that our customers use.

    Hello Neel,

    Thank you for writing.

    Following the provided information, I was unable to reproduce the issue you are facing. If the RadGridView.StandardTab property is set to false, when pressing Tab key while the grid is focused, it will focus the next cell in the grid in version 2012.1.321. I have attached my sample project. Could you please specify the exact steps how to reproduce the problem? Alternatively, feel free to open a support ticket and get back to me with a sample project so I can investigate the precise case. Thank you in advance.

    I am looking forward to your reply.

    Regards,
