Type: Feature Request
Radcalendar accesskey property is not implemented
The RadCalendar AccessKey property does not move focus to the RadCalendar control.
For example, set the AccessKey="K" for the RadCalendar.  

<telerik:RadCalendar ID="RadCalendar1" RenderMode="Lightweight" AutoPostBack="true" AccessKey="K"
         EnableKeyboardNavigation="true" EnableAriaSupport="true" EnableMultiSelect="true" runat="server"></telerik:RadCalendar>

However, focused is not moved to the Calendar with the AccessKey using ALT + Shift + key or ALT + key depending on the web browser. Please implement AccessKey for RadCalendar.

Thank You,

Hi all,

As of R3 2021, you will be able to focus the Calendar by setting its FocusKey and CommandKey properties via the KeyboardNavigationSettings inner-tag as shown below:

<KeyboardNavigationSettings FocusKey="Q" CommandKey="Alt" />

A workaround is to set the AccessKey via JavaScript. You can also set it in the markup as an argument to the JS handler that will do this:

<telerik:RadCalendar ID="RadCalendar1" RenderMode="Lightweight" AutoPostBack="true"  CssClass="TCECalendar"
    EnableKeyboardNavigation="true" EnableAriaSupport="true" EnableMultiSelect="false"
    <ClientEvents OnLoad="function(s,a){OnLoad(s,a,'K')}" />
    function OnLoad(sender, args, theKey) {
        $telerik.$(sender.get_element()).find(".rcMainTable").first().attr("accessKey", theKey);
