Keyboard Navigation

The keyboard navigation of the TimeLine is always available.

In Vertical mode when the TimeLine is focused, the first card gets focused. In Horizontal mode when the TimeLine is focused, the timeline scrollable wrap element gets focused. For a complete example, refer to the demo on keyboard navigation of the TimeLine.

Focusing the widget with the ALT+W key combination in Horizontal mode

The demo showcases how to focus the widget when the Vertical mode is used. In order to focus the widget with the ALT+W key combination in Horizontal mode, you should use the ".k-timeline-scrollable-wrap" class as a selector.

$(document.body).keydown(function (e) {
    if (e.altKey && e.keyCode == 87) {
        $(".k-timeline-scrollable-wrap").focus();
    }
});
