I am starting work on making our WPF application keyboard accessible, starting with the grids.

I am having trouble finding info on:
1. What is already available for keyboard navigation for GridView and other Telerik controls
2. What I need to code myself
3. Samples / tips on best practices for this

I have found a sample project (Silverlight) but it only provides a very small supset of the requirements.

Any help appreciated...

Hi Bill,

Generally, RadGridView provides a default keyboard command provider that is responsible for handling the navigation. I would recommend you to take a look at our online documentation for a reference. You may find this blog post helpful as well.

Thanks for the reply.
Yes I have seen both of those articles but still cannot find the documentation on the built in (default) keyboard navigation.

Oops... wait a second...

This link was empty yesterday but has content today
http://www.telerik.com/help/wpf/gridview-overview-keyboard-support.html

Is that the proper link for that documentation?

I also cannot find anything on Filter dialogs keyboard access.
Is that available at all?

Hi Bill,

Indeed, the article you have found is the one describing the navigation support of RadGridView. Considering accessing filtering control only through keyboard, we do not provide such a functionality for the time being.
