Using tab to select the next cell

Resolved
Jimmy asked on May 10, 2021

Hello,
 
Is when possible to move the selected cell indicator using Tab.
Selected cell = rowIndex = 4, columnIndex = 2
pressing tab
New selected cell = rowIndex = 4, columnIndex = 3
 
Or is it possible to get a setSelectedCell method.
so you can call pivot.setSelectedCell(4,3)

Hi Jimmy,
 
Thank you for posting your question.
 
Currently, it is not possible to move the cell selection with the Tab key. Instead, please use the arrow keys to select different cells in the grid. 
 
Please let us know if this helps.
 
Best regards,
Mykhailo

Hi Mykhailo,
 
Is it possible to get a setSelectedCell method then?

Hi Jimmy,
 
Thank you for your swift response.
 
We are not planning to introduce cell focus shifting with the Tab key in the near future.
 
Speaking of setSelectedCell(), yes, there is an experimental API call with that name. You can try using it like this:
 

flexmonster.setSelectedCell(5,4);

 
where 5 is the row index, and 4 is the column index of the cell you want to select. 
 
Hope you find this helpful!
 
Regards,
Mykhailo
