    Default Unanswered: How to use the Keyboard to Tab into Grids and Trees

    Hello All,

    I appreciate that the tab button works well on most controls, like buttons and input boxes. However, it seems that Grids and Trees do not receive focus when using the tab key.

    Once the focus is in the grid or tree via the mouse, the arrow keys can be used to select items. However, I can't see any way to get the focus into these controls without the mouse.

    Any ideas?

    It works in a button and text field because that is the browser supporting it, Ext JS doesn't control that part. Now you can capture the tab button press and try to handle it yourself.
