I've got a grid with two columns, the first is a readonly column and the second column collects user input.  When tabbing from the user input column, I get the desired behavior that the cell below the current one is activated and enters edit mode.  However there is a system beep (is it because the "next" cell is read-only?)

Also, sometimes I will get the System Beep and the current cell/row stays selected.

Hello Adam,

Thank you for your inquiry. We believe that this issue has been addressed in Q3 2008. Please verify that you use our latest release Q3 2008 SP1. If it turns out that you are using one of those two latest releases please open a new ticket and send us a sample application demonstrating the issue so we can investigate the reason. Also, do not hesitate to write me back if you have further questions.

Sincerely yours,

Is the system beep what is addressed?  Or has tabbing behavior been enhanced?  I also see the behavior that the grid does not tab at all.  I am really just trying to make a grid with a column of read-only "property names" if you will, and a column where the user can enter input for each of the entries.  The user should be able to hit tab and move to the next row, but remain in the column.  Also, is keyboard navigation supported in Q3?  Can the user press the up and down arrow keys to change cells?

Upgrading to Q3 is a last resort, as we don't want to add uneccessary work to convert it and fix different behaviors of the newer version.  I appreciate your speedy reply.

Thanks
-Adam

The cases where I could not get the tabbing to actually tab turned out to be completely our mistake.  We were doing some logic on the CellEndEdit that ended up reloading the datasource, explaining why the grid might misbehave.  Changing the code to not reload the datasource in this case fixed the issue. 

Thanks for all your help, you guys rock!

Hi Adam,

Thank you for contacting me back.

I am glad the issue was resolved.

I believe that I have a positive answer to your second question. Arrows work and if you have 2 columns and the first one is read-only when you press tab only cells in the second column enter in edit mode.

Do not hesitate to write me back if you have more questions.

Best wishes,
Nick
