how to capture a keyPress event on a read-only dataGrid that's been given the focus (or so I assume ?!)
Posted on 2003-12-05
I have a read-only datagrid that I pass the focus with
One thing that I am confused about is that when the above is called, the first cell in the dataGrid is being given the focus and when I try to caputre the keyPress event, nothing happens. I assumed that may be the above call automatically gives focus to the first DataGridCell, but when I cheked the documentation, there were no events for the DataGridCell control. I am completely lost here.
In few words, what I am trying to do is the following:
I have a textBox for which depending on the character entered I give focus to a particular DataGrid. Then I navigate through the rows and on Enter key press I want to transfer the focus back to the textBox and at the same time grab the value of the first field in the selected row. So far I wasn't able to figure out the mystery with the DataGrid Focus and keyPress event.
