Actions on record

Keyboard navigation within Grid view

A selected cell can be in one of the following states:

  1. Select state : A single click on the cell selects the cell. When in this state, arrow keys can be used to navigate to adjacent cells.
  2. Edit state : A double click on the cell puts the cell in edit state. Cursor can be moved within the cell using arrow keys.
note
  • Double-click on a cell to put it in edit state directly.
  • From Select state, press Enter key to enter edit state.
  • Press Esc key to exit edit state.
  • From Edit state, press Enter key to save the changes.

Edit state for some cells will be a picker. For example, a cell with Single Select field type will have a picker with options to choose from. In such cases, arrow keys can be used to navigate between options.
