As of Q2 2011 RadScheduler introduces keyboard support. In order to activate it, appropriate TabIndex should be set.

The keyboard navigation has the following functionalities:

  • Use the Up and Down arrows to move up and down the selected time slot (Day view)

  • Use the Up/Down/Right/Left arrows to navigate through timeslots(Month/Week views)

  • Use Tab to switch the focus among appointments

  • Use Shift + Tab to switch the focus among appointments backwards

  • Press Enter to add an appointment when the focus is on a time slot

  • Press Enter on existing appointment to trigger edit

  • Press Delete on appointment to remove it from the schedule

  • Press Esc to cancel insert/update of an Appointment

  • Alt + S saves the appointment

  • Alt + C cancels the edit / insertion

  • Alt + O opens advanced form

  • Use Shift + arrows to select multiple timeslots (like in Outlook)

The available key combinations are listed below:
