I have a post earlier about tabbing in grid control. But after trying a few things, here's what I've learned -

I have 8 controls on a form. 2 Combo box, followed by 2 Essential Grid Controls, 1 TextBox, 3 Buttons.

I need to tab between these controls and enable tabbing in the grid control as well. The Grid Control has no RowHeaders.

I have set tabIndex of all the controls, but when it comes to the grid, the tabbing does not work within or to another control.

In form load event I have set the following property
WrapCellBehavior = GridWrapCellBehavior.WrapRow
for both the grids.

If someone can tell me how I can handle this, I would appreciate it. Thanks.

To use the tab both within the grid and also onto the next control, you need to use the GridWrapCellBehavior.NextControlInForm setting.

Here is a sample with 2 comboboxes, 2 gridcontrols, 1 textbox and 3 buttons. The grids do not show the row headers. It shows the minimal grid property settings to see the tabbing work on the grids.

Thanks for the information. I tried and that worked if I hide the row headers. I would like not to have them at all since it takes up extra space even if I hide it and gives me scroll bars. Any way out of that. Can I not tab in the grid control if the Row Headers are set to false..

I got it to work by disabling the HScrollBehaviour and VScrollBehaviour. Thanks a lot for you help. I really appreciate it. The forums are very helpful.
