Hello,

when having dropdown focused, I cannot make the dropdown list open using keyboard. Standard <select> form field uses space key to achieve this.

When selecting list item, up and down arrows, enter and ESC (when the list is open) works, but home, end, page up and down keystrokes select different item but also scrolls the whole page. Tested it on your demo page here: http://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/dropdownlist/index

Other keystrokes seems to work fine.

Hello,

In the current implementation of the DropDownList's keyboard support, the dropdown is opened by pressing ALT + Down Arrow and is closed by pressing ALT + Up arrow.
As for the second problem, I logged this behavior as a bug in our public Github repo. You can track its status through this issue. 

I updated your Telerik points as a small token of gratitude for reporting this issue.

Regards,
