Keyboard Support

RadBreadcrumb provides built-in keyboard support and can be used as soon the control gets focused. You can focus it by iterating through the Page controls using the Tab key, alternatively, you can use a shortcut if you set the AccessKey property.

<telerik:RadBreadcrumb runat="server" ID="RadBreadcrumb1" AccessKey="W"></telerik:RadBreadcrumb>
  • Under IE and Chrome use Alt + AccessKey
  • Under Firefox use Shift + Alt + AccessKey



  • Alt + AccessKey Focuses the Breadcrumb and turns it into edit mode.

    • When the control is focused and its Editable property is set to true, triggers edit mode.
