Keyboard Shortcut to move between grid fields and header fields

  • 1.  Keyboard Shortcut to move between grid fields and header fields

    Posted 12 days ago
    I am looking for an easy way to move between the header fields and the grid fields with the keyboard.  For instance, in screen 40.100.00 (Sales Orders), we would like to be able to use the keyboard to move back to the grid fields to change a PO Number without using the mouse.

    Similarly, in screen 04.250.00 (Purchase Orders), we would like to be able to use the keyboard to move back to the grid fields to change detail level information without using the mouse.

    Assuming I have not missed any existing functionality, suggestions for a customization are appreciated.

    Todd,

    You can add hot keys to screens by using Customization Manager and editing the caption of a label to include an & before the character you want to work with when the user presses ALT+(the character in question).  So, for this you would edit one in the header and one in the grid.
