    Is there any way to navigate the dates in the Calendar via the board arrow keys? We have an application that needs to be fully keyboard accessible. 

    Sometimes when we load the calendar and mouse over (which I'm assuming sets the focus to the Calendar) we can use tab to move through dates.

    I'm looking for a solution to set the focus to the calendar when it opens (clicked on the calendar icon) and then allow the user to use arrow keys to move through dates, and, or navigate the interface of the calendar.

    We use the radDatePicker, Q2 release, our site is ajaxified (scriptmanager, update panels, etc.) 

    Any assistance is much appreciated. Thank you.

    Hello Remi,

    I am afraid RadCalendar does not support the desired functionality. However I will forward it to our developers so they consider implementing it in future versions of the control.
    I also need to mention that you can use the keyboard arrows and mouse wheel in the DateInput of the RadDatePicker to change the selected date. For that purpose, set in the InrementSetting of the DateInput the InterceptArrowKeys and InterceptMouseWheel  properties to true.

    I hope this helps.
