    I'm now being told by my users that it's imperative to be able to navigate the batch edit using the up and down arrows.  Essentially they are looking for the functionality of Excel in a webpage. Up and Down should go to the next or previous row, and left and right should be the same as tab / shift + tab.

    Does this functionality exist?  And if so how would I activate it?  

    Thank you.

    Hello Brad,

    I'm afraid currently there is no built-in property to achieve this requirement. You can try to implement a custom solution by using the OnKeyPressed event handler of the grid and the batch methods:

    You can also check the last example in the following thread:


    Check out the Telerik Platform - the only platform that combines a rich set of UI tools with powerful cloud services to develop web, hybrid and native mobile apps.

    Hello Brad,

    Yes, this functionality exists.

    You will activate that by doing simple steps.

    You have to apply AllowKeyboardNavigation="true" in ClientSettings attribute.

    Here is the full example of the same:
