Moving in Lists using the Keyboard

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

To move inside lists such as those displayed in the ComboBox, ListBox or ListView, you can use the following keyboard shortcuts :


You can move the selection up and down by one using the UP and Down keys.


You can move by larger increments by using the PageUp and PageDown keys.


Using the HOME key brings you to the top of the list.


Using the END key brings you to the end of the list.


You can move to a desired entry by typing the first letter of that entry. If there are more than one entry beginning with the same letter, typing a letter a second time brings you to the second occurence of an entry starting with that letter, and so on.
