    There appear to be issues regarding keyboard navigation of the RadFileExplorer. These issues are evident in the demo provided on:

    http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/fileexplorer/examples/default/defaultcs.aspx

    Specifically, the issues are:

    1. In Firefox, keyboard navigation of the tree does not work. Keyboard navigation of the grid is fine.
    2. In IE(7+), whilst keyboard navigation of both the tree and the grid seem to work okay, navigation from the grid back to the tree is awkward (I have actually been unable to do it, so may be impossible). Forward navigation appears to be acceptable.

    Hello Ian,

    You should set TabIndex property of the treeview in the FileExplorer like this:

    FileExplorer1.TreeView.TabIndex = 1;

    also subscribe to ClientFolderChange event of the explorer and  add the following code in its handler:

    function clientFolderChange(sender, args) {
        sender.get_tree().get_element().focus();
     }

    All the best,
