Hi Paurnima,


Sorry for the delay in response.


If you want to focus the child table row  using the tab key and also focus the particular cell of row index in a grid, you can use the “TableControlKeyDown” event and focus particular cell by using “MoveTo()”method and set the “GridSetCurrentCellOptions” as SetFocus. Please refer the below code,




this.gridGroupingControl1.TableControlKeyDown += new GridTableControlKeyEventHandler(gridGroupingControl1_TableControlKeyDown);

void gridGroupingControl1_TableControlKeyDown(object sender, GridTableControlKeyEventArgs e)


   GridCurrentCell cc = e.TableControl.CurrentCell;

   GridTable tablechild = this.gridGroupingControl1.GetTable("Orders");

   if (tablechild.CurrentRecord != null)


     if (e.Inner.KeyCode == Keys.Tab)


         e.TableControl.CurrentCell.MoveTo(GridRangeInfo.Cell(cc.RowIndex + 1, 1), GridSetCurrentCellOptions.SetFocus); // focus to next row in child table



   MessageBox.Show("Table RowIndex : " + tablechild.CurrentRecord.GetRowIndex());

   e.Inner.Handled = true;



Please let us know if you have any concern.
