    I am using Multiple selection Combo box (Chekcbox) in one of our page which has multiple control on the page.

    Our user is using 'TAB' key to move focus on one control to other control. If the user clicked one of the checkbox in combo box then pressed 'TAB' Key, it wont go to the next control.

    Is there any work around to use TAB key in  ComboBox - CheckBoxes?

    Thank you

    Hi Murugesh,

    As a work around please try the following code snippet which works fine at my end.

    <telerik:RadComboBox ID="RadComboBox1" runat="server" CheckBoxes="true">
            <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="Item1" onkeydown="Navigate(event)" />
            <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="Item2" onkeydown="Navigate(event)" />
            <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="Item3" onkeydown="Navigate(event)" />
    <telerik:RadComboBox ID="RadComboBox2" runat="server">
    <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox1" runat="server">

    <script type="text/javascript">
        function Navigate(event) {
            if (event.keyCode == 9) {
                var Combo = $find("<%=RadComboBox2.ClientID %>");
                var combo1 = $find("<%=RadComboBox1.ClientID %>");

    Thank you so much.. It worked very well on the checkbox dropdown.

    Will it work on the  Treeview dropdown with checkbox? Please see the attached screenshot.

    Thank you.

    Hello Murugesh,

    in general the RadcomboBox control have a different client-side API compared to the RadDropDownTree control. For this reason I can suggest that you refer to the following help article to get a better understanding of the client-side properties that you can use with the RadDropDownTree control - Client-side Programming section (check also the related articles) and the Keyboard Support demo of the RadDropDownTree control.
