    I have a usecase where I need to pause Shortcut Key handlers for specific keys (better to pause for all keyboard keys) and resume it back again. How can I do that?

    Spread.Views does not have KeyBoards event associated with it. You may need to handle the DOM keyboard events in code manually.

    I think spread.focus(false) will stop all the navigation keyboard events

    Spread.Views does not have a focus() method but Spread.Sheets has.
    If you are working with Spread.Views you would need to handle the events(selectionchanged, focuschanged, startediting etc) manually and cancel the event.

    Great. Thanks for the details.

    Since we are working on Spread.Sheets, we are in that context.
