Description (last modified by davidb)

Note: If this gets fixed, please update the related keyboard docs

This is true for tab containers as well as stack container (accordion container has not implemented navigation by ctrl-tab/ctrl-shift-tab and ctrl-pageup/pagedown).

I am not sure if this is an IE7 limitation that the ctrl-tab/ctrl-shift-tab combinations can not be captured or not? If not fixed the a11y documentation for these containers needs to be updated to indicate that only ctrl-pageup/down works within IE7 to move from tab to tab.

This is now also present in Accordion (with the recent fix for 4679). I'll update the docs.

Milestone: 1.01.1

OK docs have been updated for containers: Stack, Tab, and Accordion. We'll need to update again if this gets fixed. Moving to 1.1 target as users can still ctrl-pgup/dwn for IE7.

Unfortunately, we can't capture this combination on IE7 via keypress or keydown handling.
