I have already responded to you in the private support thread but I will paste my response here as well:

I have reviewed the information in the private thread that was submitted and here are my observations:

1) To enable keyboard navigation, the Kendo UI Grid should be set as navigatable:true

2) When Enter is pressed it is expected that the focused row should be open for editing, The grid should be configured for CRUD operations:


3) If another Enter is pressed, the row closes

If you wish to expand the details you should use Alt + left/right arrow

If you wish to persist the expanded rows upon data binding of the master grid, you may check the how-to article at:


The only thing that I noticed is that we could focus the expand/collapse cell and when the user presses enter to toggle the detail visibility. Do you think that this could be a nice addition to the keyboard navigation?

In case we have missed anything, please advise.

Look forward to hearing back from you.

Expected behavior is: When the target is any of the Command buttons, action related to the command button must happen. Toggle of detail view should be triggered only when focus is on "Expand Row" + Enter key
