    Hi,

    I'm using the keyboard navigation demo and I can't get the F10 - Focus Toolbar functionality to work. I will hit F10 and then try to tab to the next toolbar item, but it instead starts focusing on the existing events.  Basically in the demo I can't do any of the actions listed as Actions Applied On Scheduler Toolbar. What do I need to do to get that working?

    And as a side question, if it is working, is the Show Full Day / Show Business Hours button considered part of the toolbar?  So if once I have focus on the toolbar working, will I also be able to tab to that button?

     

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Hi Mike,

    Focusing Scheduler's toolbar with F10 works on my side as expected - tested on Chrome, Firefox, IE 11 and Edge browsers. We have a known appearance issue in Material, Material Black and Fiori LESS themes, as well as in our SASS themes - it is not possible to tell if a toolbar item is focused in these themes. I transferred the issue to the respective public repositories, so that they may be visible to you.

    Here is a short video of Scheduler toolbar interaction functionality, recorded with Default LESS theme on Chrome. When Scheduler is focused, pressing F10 moves the focus to Today button. As far as the Show Full Day / Show Business Hours button is concerned, it is not part of the toolbar and it is not possible to navigate to it in the way toolbar items can be focused.

    Hi Dimitar,

    That was exactly what it was. I was using the Material theme when I was trying to get to the toolbar. Thanks for your help.

    As far as the Show Full Day / Show Business Hours button goes, is there some way I can create a shortcut key to get to that button?  And is there a way to put in a request to add keyboard support for that button? Otherwise it makes the scheduler not quite accessible for those users with screen readers or that cannot use a mouse.

     

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Hi Mike,

    You are right about the lack of keyboard support for this button so I logged an item to improve this interaction. It is possible to add a shortcut to execute the button as shown in the Dojo linked in the issue - Alt + w will execute button's click. As a small token of gratitude for your suggestion I updated your Telerik points. Thank you for your feedback.
