    In Farpoint Spread Auto Suggested List will Generate… It can only be selected by Mouse… Is there any other way that it can be Selected by Arrow keys(Down and Up)… If i select Down/Up its Moving to the Below/Upper Cells. Is there a way to select in Keyboard

    In the Spread drop down Auto Suggested list is reading Twice in Jaws while navigating using Arrow keys… Is it a Jaws Behavior…?

    In Spread you need to get into the edit mode in order to get the dropdown list appeared. Using the arrow keys you would need to hit enter key when focus is on Combo cell to show the drop down. Then the selection happens through up and down arrow keys.

    I tested with Jaws and found that it first gives you the cell information and when the dropdown appears it tells you the selected item from list on selection(using up & down arrow keys). The dropdown list is only read once.

    Please test the attached sample application.

    HI Deepak,

    Thank u So much for the reply… But the Cell Type in the Spread is IncrementalSearchCellType… Where the Auto Suggested list generates and the List items are Reading twice…

    With our Windows Forms version of Spread , we do not have any IncrementalSearchCellType. Could you please let me know what celltype are you sing exactly? It will be great if you could share a small sample application so that I can debug this issue further.

    Thanks, Deepak Sharma

    Its a CustomCells in a MVP model… where IncrementalSearchCellType is created as StyledTextCellType where Data to the Cell is added from other DLL.

    Hi Vijay,

    It could be an issue related to the values read from the other dll as you mentioned. You can check the same by setting the default combobox and see if the values are read twice on drop down.

    Thanks, Deepak Sharma
