Keyboard support

You can enable keyboard navigation in the RadLightBox control by setting the ClientSettings.AllowKeyboardNavigation property to True (its default value is False). Currently the following features are supported:

  • Access Keys: An access key is a key combination (e.g. Ctrl+Y) that lets the user move focus to the LightBox control and subsequently use the Left and Rigth arrow keys for navigation. The access key is defined using the AccessKey property. For example, setting the AccessKey property to "Y" enables users to move focus to the LightBox by typing Ctrl+Y.
        <telerik:RadLightBox RenderMode="Lightweight" ID="RadLightBox1" runat="server" AccessKey="Y">
        <ClientSettings AllowKeyboardNavigation="true">
            <ClientEvents />
  • Left keys: Navigates to the previous item

  • Right keys: Navigates to the next item

  • Esc keys: Closes RadLightBox control
