    I designed an application using RadSplitter with two RadPanes. The first RadPane contains a RadTreeView, is coded in the same page, works fine, and is keyboard accessible. The second RadPane pulls in another page and I cannot figure out how to shift focus using the keyboard from the RadTreeView to the updated RadPane2. The screen reader tells me that there is one frame on the page and, after clicking a link in the TreeView, that RadPane2 updated. However, none of the standard keyboard shortcuts for navigating frames and the Alt+accesskey I entered for RadPane2 doesn't work.

    Is there something else I need to do to be able to move from one to the other using the keyboard?

    Hello Jennifer,
    When you set the ContentUrl property of the RadPane, the pane creates an IFRAME element and opens the page in this IFRAME. That is why, every approach that would work with an IFRAME will work with the RadPane control.
