Navigating Through Cells

  • 2 minutes to read

The keyboard shortcuts and mouse operations listed in this topic can be used by end-users to move row and cell focus.

Action Effect
Clicking a data cell Moves focus to the clicked cell.
Clicking a row header Moves row focus to the clicked row header and gives focus to the cell within the current record. Clicking the multi-editor row's header gives focus to the cell within the current record whose corresponding row item was clicked.
DOWN ARROW Moves focus to the next row and gives focus to the first cell within the current record.
UP ARROW Moves focus to the previous row and gives focus to the first cell within the current record.
HOME Moves focus to the first cell within the current row.
END Moves focus to the last cell within the current row.
PAGE DOWN Moves row focus one page down and gives focus to the first cell within the current record.
PAGE UP Moves row focus one page up and gives focus to the first cell within the current record.
CTRL + HOME Moves focus to the first cell within the first row.
CTRL + END Moves focus to the last cell within the last row.

If the control's VGridOptionsBehavior.AutoSelectAllInEditor option is active, the entire cell's content is automatically selected when a cell editor is activated. In this case, the LEFT and RIGHT arrow keys cannot be used to move the cursor within the cell. These keys force navigation to the previous and next records, respectively.

Note: if the single record view layout is applied to the control and horizontal scrolling is disabled (the control's VGridControlBase.ScrollVisibility property is set to the ScrollVisibility.Never or ScrollVisibility.Vertical value), end-users can only navigate through the cells within the current record.
