Keyboard Support

A typical business application needs to support "heads-down" data entry that avoids the use of the mouse. With RadGridView the user can:

  • Navigate the grid using only the arrow keys.

  • Edit rows using the F2 or Enter keys, depending on the BeginEditMode value.

Key Description
Up Arrow moves the selection up
Down Arrow moves the selection down
Left Arrow moves the selection left
Right Arrow moves the selection right
Enter Opens the cell editor / Commits the changes
F2 Opens the cell editor
Esc Deactivates cell editor and discards the changes
