    Is it possible to use the arrow keys on a keyboard to do a yahoo style scrolling on the radgrid when there is already a scroll bar implemented on the main page?


    for instance:


    main page needs a scroll bar because of the size.

    rad grid will need a scroll bar

    auto scrolling is set to true

    page posts back during scrolling with mouse

    must be able to use arrow keys for scrolling


    Even in the examples on your pages I have noticed that you cant use the arrow keys with the scroll bars.  Is this the norm or am i missing something?

    Hello Daren,

    In order to enable the arrow keys to scroll the content of the grid, you need to enable its Scrolling, Keyboard Navigation and Row Selection functionalities. Following is a simple example of a grid that will allow you to use the arrow keys for moving through items and scroll the content (when there is a selected item or when the grid is on focus):
    <telerik:RadGrid runat="server" ID="RadGrid1" OnNeedDataSource="RadGrid1_NeedDataSource" ClientSettings-Scrolling-AllowScroll="true"
        <ClientSettings AllowKeyboardNavigation="true">

    And the dummy data:
    protected void RadGrid1_NeedDataSource(object sender, GridNeedDataSourceEventArgs e)
        DataTable table = new DataTable();
        table.Columns.Add("ID", typeof(int));
        table.Columns.Add("BoolValue", typeof(Boolean));
        for (int i = 0; i < 500; i++)
            table.Rows.Add(i, i % 2 == 0);
        (sender as RadGrid).DataSource = table;

    Hope this helps.
