End-User Capabilities: Navigating Through Rows and Cells

Expanded Move Focus Between Rows and Cards

To move focus between cells and rows use the ARROW, TAB, HOME, END, PAGE UP and PAGE DOWN keys. Note that the ARROW, HOME and END keys are used for navigation between rows/cards only when the focused cell is not being edited. Othewise, these keys affect focus movement within the currently edited cell.

Do one of the following to focus the next cell:

  • Press TAB.
  • In Grid Views, press RIGHT ARROW. In Card Views and Layout Views, press DOWN ARROW. If a cell editor is active, pressing RIGHT ARROW moves focus to the next cell if the caret is positioned at the end of the current cell's text or if the cell's text is selected in its entirety.

Do one of the following to focus the previous cell.

  • Press SHIFT+TAB.
  • In Grid Views, press LEFT ARROW. In Card Views and Layout Views, press UP ARROW. If a cell editor is active, pressing LEFT ARROW moves focus to the previous cell if the caret is positioned at the beginning of the current cell's text or if the cell's text is selected in its entirety.

To focus the first cell within the current row in Grid Views, press HOME.

To focus the last cell within the current row in Grid Views, press END.

To focus the first row/card:

  • press CTRL+HOME in Grid Views;
  • press HOME or CTRL+Home in Card Views and Layout Views.

To focus the last row/card:

  • press CTRL+END in Grid Views;
  • press END or CTRL+END in Card Views and Layout Views.

Do one of the following to move focus to the Auto Filter Row displayed at the top of a Grid View.

  • Click this row.
