    Hi Kendo Mastah,

    How can I achieve that? Here is my code that doesn't work :(
    It aims to trigger the right arrow key event by pressing the enter key while an item is active.

    $(document).keyup(function (e) {
    if (e.which == 13) {
    	var press = $.Event("keypress");
       	press.ctrlKey = false;
            press.which = 39;

    Hello Robert,

    The easiest way to achieve this is through the TreeView API. You could get the selected item using the select method and trigger the expand with the expand method.


    $(document).keyup(function (e) {
        if (e.which == 13) {
            var treeview = $("#treeview").data("kendoTreeView");
            var selected =;

    Please let me know if this was the functionality that you were looking for.

    All the best,
