This example demonstrates how you can use the keyboard to control a RadPushButton. You can focus a button by using the Tab key if you set the TabIndex property of RadPushButton according to the desired flow of the page.

In addition, you can use a shortcut if you set the AccessKey property. Press Alt+AccessKey in IE and Chrome, Shift+Alt+AccessKey for Firefox and Shift+Esc+AccessKey for Opera.

To execute a selected Link button press the Enter or Space key when it is focused.

Note: By default tab-access is disabled in Safari. To enable it, check "Preferences > Advanced > Press tab to highlight each item on the page".
