jQuery Timeline Keyboard Navigation

Keyboard navigation provides all web and app users with a fast keyboard-only navigation capability and is also part of the web accessibility features–it enables users with disabilities to fully control their website or app access through the keyboard.

By default, users can only navigate to links, buttons, and form controls with a keyboard. The navigation order in which interactive items receive keyboard focus has to be logical and intuitive. Generally, keyboard navigation logic needs to follow the visual horizontal and vertical flow of the page, for example, left to right and top to bottom, header first followed by the main and then the page navigation.

The keyboard navigation of the Kendo UI for jQuery Timeline is always available, as demonstrated in this demo.

This Timeline example is part of a unique collection of hundreds of jQuery demos, with which you can see all Kendo UI for jQuery components and their features in action. View the source code of the demos from the library or directly adapt, and edit them and their theme appearance in Kendo UI for jQuery Dojo or ThemeBuilder.

The Kendo UI for jQuery Timeline supports the following keyboard shortcuts:


  • Alt + w Focuses the component.

Actions Applied in Vertical Mode

  • Tab Focuses the next card.
  • Shift + Tab Focus the previous card.
  • Space Toggles the expand and collapse state of the item.
  • Enter Toggles the expand and collapse state of the item.

  • Left Arrow Focuses and selects the previous item.
  • Right Arrow Focuses and selects the next item.
  • Tab When the focus is on the Timeline tabs, focuses the current item card.
