I have a batch grid that is part of a larger form. Kendo UI version is: 2013.1.319
What I would like to accomplish is when I hit tab in the last form field before the grid, have it select the first column in the first row of the grid and kick that cell into edit mode.
Currently, when I do this the grid selects the cell (It gets highlighted), but it does not transition the cell into edit mode. If I hit tab once more, then the next column is selected AND the cell is kicked into edit mode.
This issue is present in the Batch Editing Demo on the Kendo UI site here
Steps to recreate:
- Click "Cancel Changes" so that that button has the focus.
- Hit tab. Here you'll see a dotted line surround the k-content area.
- Hit tab again. The cell with Product Name of "Chai" will be selected, but it's editor template will not appear
- If you hit tab once more, the next column is selected (Unit Price: $18.00). In this case you'll see the numeric textbox kick in and the cell is in edit mode.
I've done some digging myself on my side by logging the grid's Edit event, and I can verify that the event is not being fired when the first cell is highlighted, but it is being fired when that last tab occurs (when the second column becomes a text field).
Does there happen to be a simple way of resolving this issue that I'm overlooking?
