Hi, i have a couple columns in my gridview with comboboxes.  These combo boxes are type aheads, I want to be able to type in one box, key down to the selection I want, and then hit tab to select that item and then move the cursor into the combo box in the next column.

I did implement a custom keyboard command providor, since I cleared the commands there the tabing has been working great as far as moving from control to control in my grid, however it is not selecting the time.  For now to get the desired result I have to hit "Enter" to select the item, and then tab to go to the next contorl, I basically want tab to do both of those actions.  I tried doing commandsToExcute.Add.SelectCurrentItem and SelectCurrentUnit but those didn't seem to do anything for me, I probably misunderstood what they are for.

Hello Kjell,

With the current version of RadGridView such navigation with TAB key is not possible. This feature is in our TODO list (already with the highest priority), so we will implement it very soon. As soon as this feature is ready we will make it public via latest internal build program, or with some official release. Unfortunately I cannot give you a workaround.

According to RadGridViewCommands.SelectCurrentUnit command - it is a helper command which is used for navigation and editing purposes.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
