In a navigatable grid with row selection mode, It should be possible to focus row using arrow keys (up or down) instead of space bar.

Right now when user press arrow keys, only once cell is being highlighted and focused. If user wants to highlight that row then he needs to press spacebar.

this behavior is confusing for end user.

Hello,

Actually you can directly move the focus and select a row using up/down arrows + shift key. Is that an option for you guys or do you want to override the default behavior? Here is a dojo you can test.

The recommended feature is the expected behavior for many applications where users interact with the row rather than individual cells.  The UX that requires navigation by cell and spacebar to select a row is considered a deal-breaker by our UX designers and by our clients.  

It appears to be a pretty common request:

If the up/down arrow key navigation is put into place without having to suppress the spacebar, then it would also be nice for the navigation to flag changes as dirty and maintain the modified value.  For example, editing a value on a cell.  Up arrow is suppressed.  Focus is placed on the previous row/same column and the modified value from the previous cell is maintained and 'dirtied'.
