    I have a grid in batch edit mode. I have two issues re tabbing when navigating the grid cell:

    1: If i have a read-only ID column (the first column), how can I avoid tabbing into the cell when tabbing though the grid? I set the column attributes tabindex property to a negative number AND I have a custom editor in the cell with a negative tabindex  value, which effectively makes it a read-only cell.However the table cell still gets tabbed into when navigating the row. I want to the column to be skipped completely when tabbing.


    2:  When tabbing into a command column. Is it possible to immediately activate the first command button? Right now the user must hit the Enter key twice to trigger the command via the keyboard. Once to highlight the  first button and again to trigger the click event.

    Hi Eric,

    Please refer to the answer in the following forum thread regarding your first requirement for skipping the read only cells while tabbing:
    As for the second requirement, you will have to manually focus the button when the command cell is focused, because by default, the focusing will go to the cell (which is part of the built-in navigation).

    Hope this helps.
