[UWP] Horizontal Scrolling via keyboard arrows?

How can I scroll via keyboard arrows? I see the highlighted cell moves, but when it goes off the shown screen the Grid is not scrolled (only a bit but not completely).

AutoGenerateColumns="true"
ColumnSizer="Auto"
NavigationMode="Cell"
SelectionMode="Single"
VerticalOverScrollMode="None">


I use:

VS2017 15.9.5
Xamarin.Forms 3.4.0.1009999
Syncfusion.Xamarin.SfDataGrid 16.4.0.42
.net standard 2.0 lib as shared project
Windows 10 1709 (UWP app MinVersion 16299/Target: 17763 with Microsoft.NETCore.UniversalWindowsPlatform Version 6.1.9)

It works with 17.1.0.32-beta as written in docs:

Bug Fixes
  • #I225738 - [UWP] Now, navigation through cells via keyboard scrolls to the next cell properly.


I can verify that it works and the grid scrolls now to the end.

I have indeed one more question about it. Can I specifiy in code how many cells I scroll with 1 keyboard arrow action? So using arrow key once, but move 2 cells for faster scrolling?

I would first try it if it makes or not.Maybe apply the faster scrolling (by the applied factor) when pressing SHIFT+Arrow key 🤔

Btw, does Android support scrolling? I've installed a x86 Android Pie next to my Windows 10 on my Toshiba Encore Tablet and running the Android part of XF app doesn't allow me to use keyboard navigation from attached USB keyboard.

Hi Andre, 
 
Thank you for the update. 
 
We checked your requirement “Provide support to define the number cells to move for scrolling” currently we don’t have this support. However we planned to expose override methods to define the keydown behavior in sample level. We will consider your requirement in this feature request itself. 
 
Currently, these feature requests are in the validated state and is in the queue to implement in our database. We didn’t plan to implement these mentioned features in our upcoming Volume release. We are always trying to make our products better and feature requests like yours are a key part of our product growth efforts.   
   
At the planning stage for every release cycle, we review all open features and identify features for implementation based on specific parameters including product vision, technological feasibility, and customer interest. We will let you know when this feature is implemented.   
  
You can track the status of this feature request here,  
  
  
Please cast your vote to make it count. We will prioritize the features every release based on the demands.  
 
 
Query 2 :  KeyNavigation is not working in android platform. 
 
We have provided key navigation support in Xamarin Forms UWP and Xamarin Froms Mac platform.

Hi,

thanks for the update on both questions.

You can install Android apps on Chromebooks/ChromeOS, here primary usage is also keyboard:

However, to ensure your app works on all Chromebooks, go to your manifest file and adjust the settings so that the android.hardware.touchscreen feature is not required, as shown in the following example. Removing the requirement for touch input means you should also review your app's support for mouse and keyboard interactions.

So it would be nice to add keyboard scrolling support in Android, too in a later 17.x update.
