Customize Keyboard Navigation

The following properties customize keyboard navigation:

  • enterKeyAction
    Specifies the DataGrid's actions when a user presses Enter key:

    • "moveFocus" - moves focus in the enterKeyDirection
    • "startEdit" (default) - switches the cell to the editing state
  • enterKeyDirection
    Specifies the direction in which to move focus when a user presses Enter:

    • "row"
    • "column"
    • "none" (default)
  • editOnKeyPress
    Specifies whether to start entering a new cell value on a key press.

In this demo, you can use the controls under the DataGrid to change any of these properties.
