Repeat grid header gaining focus when using tab key
SummaryThe repeat grid header is getting highlighted (gaining focus), when a user is navigating using the tab key. This happens despite having no actions configured on the header.
Error MessagesNot Applicable
Steps to Reproduce1. Create section with a repeat grid.
2. Add text to column header.
2. Navigate into grid using tab key.
Root CauseThis functionality is the current default behavior when the user is navigating a repeat grid using the tab key.
This explicit focus behavior was added to support accessibility requirements.
ResolutionTab focus is not explicitly needed on a grid header unless there are actionable events (sorting, filtering, and so on).
There are alternative methods to read and interact with a grid as an accessible user which negate the need for this tab focus.Product management is reviewing this behavior for future releases of Pega.
Product Enhancment Request FDBK-10858 has been created for this purpose.
