Kendo React ListBox -> keyboard navigation

I can't find anything on your website or on the internet that explains how to navigate a Kendo React ListBox control using the keyboard.

Can you point me in the right direction on this issue?

Thanks.

This is important. Our company is trying to develop a new application that is fully accessible.

Hello Stefan,

thanks for fast response.

Please convert this to a public official feature request for built-in keyboard navigation to support accessibility.

Hello, Ruslan,

Currently, the keyboard navigation has to be added programmatically by the developer. This will require adding a div with an onKeyDown event handler and moving the items or the selection based on the application requirements. To showcase a possible approach I made a demo that moves the selected item with the arrow up/down:

https://stackblitz.com/edit/react-vkysrn?file=app/main.jsx

If you wish I can also convert that to a public official feature request for built-in keyboard navigation.
