We are unable to use the suggested keyboard shortcut of 'alt + j' to give a grid focus when there is more than one grid on screen.

Is there currently a solution to this, or is it something you could work into the product please?

Many thanks.

Hi Greg,

We have validate your requirement and  we have achieved your requirement by workaround. Please find the code snippet.

<div id="Grid"></div><br /><br />
<div id="Grid1"></div>

<script type="text/javascript">

        $(function () {


                // the datasource "window.gridData" is referred from jsondata.min.js

                dataSource: ej.DataManager(window.gridData).executeLocal(ej.Query().take(300)),

                allowGrouping: true,

                allowPaging: true,

. . .




                // the datasource "window.gridData" is referred from jsondata.min.js

                dataSource: window.employeeView,

                allowGrouping: true,

                . . .



            //Control focus key

            $(document).on("keydown", function (e) {

                if (e.altKey && e.keyCode === 74) { // j- key code.



                if (e.altKey && e.keyCode === 75) { // k- key code.





In above code snippet we have achieved your requirement through “keydown” event. You can able to focus multiple Grid element through jquery focus() with specific id selector. For your convenience we have a prepared a sample and please find the following link:
