How do you navigate with tab key through Grouping grid hierarchy?
1. How do you set focus when grid loads to a specific column? I my case the focus always get set on forms button.
2. Currently, when you tab through a row, the focus "gets stack" on the last column of the row and would not go to child row.
How do you navigate to the child row?

Hi Madhan,
Thanks a lot for help. This approach (navigate to a next row when tab key is at the last column of a row) works well if you want to navigate through a single table. How do I deal with navigating from parent table to a child table?

Maybe there's a new better way of doing this.

Hi Stephane,

Thanks for your interest in Syncfusion Products.

To tab through the cells across parent-child grids, TableControlMoveCurrentCellDirection event can be handled. In this event, the movement of currentcell focus can be handled and set accordingly. Please refer to the following sample in which this has been implemented.
