Property Value

Type Default Description
DefaultBoolean

Default

A DefaultBoolean enumeration value that specifies whether switching between tabbed documents using keyboard shortcuts is allowed.

Available values:

Name Description
True

Corresponds to a Boolean value of true.

False

Corresponds to a Boolean value of false.

Default

The value is determined by the current object's parent object setting (e.g., a control setting).

Remarks

An end-user can use the Document Selector to navigate to a specific document or dock panel using the keyboard (see BaseView.UseDocumentSelector). By default, the Document Selector is enabled. If the Document Selector is disabled, it is still possible to switch between tabbed documents using the CTRL+TAB and CTRL+SHIFT+TAB shortcuts. The AllowHotkeyNavigation property specifies whether this feature is enabled. The Default value assigned to this property is equivalent to False. Thus, the keyboard hot-key navigation is disabled by default. Set the AllowHotkeyNavigation property to True to allow an end-user to switch between tabbed documents using keyboard shortcuts.
