Hi,

The grid control looks good performance and feature wise.
However i was wondering how to switch on the cell-only/cell-row navigation (with keyboard) feature.

Can anybody suggest me on this?

Thanks,
Anurodh

Hi Anurodh,

We are very pleased by the fact that you like our WPF grid. Tomorrow we will be releasing Service Pack 1 for our WPF suite that improves stability and adds several new features. One of the new features will allow you to navigate through cells using the TAB key. This feature is always turned on and you won't have to manually enable it.
Will this new feature work for you or you require different kind of keyboard navigation?

Best wishes,
Milan

Thanks for the reply.

Will it be possible to move between cells with keyboard arrow keys and if someone wants to edit cell content could he be able to do it with F2 keypress and to cancel edit mode with ESC keypress.

Essentially all it means is to have very flexible keyboard navigation so that user do not have to waste time switching between mouse and keyboard for say large bulk insertion/modification in the grid.

Thanks, I am looking forward for next service pack release.

Hello Anurodh,

Yes, we have implemented cell navigation through the standard Tab/Shift+Tab keys. Right now the up/down arrow keys select rows. It should be possible to have the left/right arrow select cells, but it would require a custom implementation. The same goes for the F2 key that we still have not implemented as a default cell edit keyboard handler.

Has there been any change on this front in terms of keyboard navigation in the RadGrid?

Our current legacy application that is being replaced (Delphi code) allows the user to key a value and press end and advance to the cell beneath the one edited. The users will want this same functionality in their new application. That way the user can focus on updating data in a given column and use their numeric keypad and Enter key by the keypad rather than having to tab.

If this isn't available, is there a way to workaround/code around this to remap/trap the events and programatically pick the cell beneath???

Thanks, just trying to figure out which way/product to go with on this design....

Hi Byron,

We will do our best to implement keyboard navigation for Q3 release. This will include arrow keys support as well as home/end key.
