#9295 closed defect (wontfix)

Keyboard shortcuts for Grid don't work in Safari

Reported by: oneBill Owned by: Bryan Forbes
Priority: low Milestone: tbd
Component: DojoX Grid Version: 1.3.0
Keywords: Safari, grid, keyboard, shortcuts Cc: Becky Gibson
Blocked By: Blocking:

Description

Enter should open a new editor, down arrow should focus on the next cell in a column, etc., but none of the shortcuts work.

My fairly uneducated guess: the problem seems to be that the keyboard shortcuts aren't actually being fed to the grid itself (in the following example, the down arrow -does- scroll down in the grid, although it seems to be moving the window in which the grid is contained, rather than doing so via the grid itself.)

I should have mentioned explicitly in the body of the ticket: these problems only apply to Safari.

I'm guessing this is an a11y issue? (just off the top of my head...)

Safari 3 does not support setting focus to any element which is needed in order to provide arrow key navigation within the grid. Thus, keyboard support in the grid is not expected to work in Safari 3. Safari 4 does support tabindex and setting focus to any element but I haven't tested safari 4 with the grid nor made any attempt to getting keyboard working with it, yet.

Resolution: wontfix
Status: newclosed

Closing as wontfix for now - since safari doesn't appear to support it.
