Section 508 and the web accessibility guidelines make Web content accessible to people with disabilities or those that are technically limited. Enabled, the AccessibilityCompliant property provides for generating additional (accessibility specific) HTML code (like the A element, the attributes for the Table element etc.).

To learn more, see Accessibility Support.


  • Set the AccessibilityCompliant property to true to add the “Presentation” role attribute to the grid table and prevent the grid table from focusing. In this case, the ASPxGridView.KeyboardSupport property that applies focus to the grid table is not in effect.

  • You can use UP/DOWN/LEFT/RIGHT keys to navigate between grid-like control’s records if the control’s KeyboardSupport option is enabled. However, the control does not allow you to use the mentioned keys for keyboard navigation if the AccessibilityCompliant option is also enabled.
