      Description

      Feature Request - With the ice:dataTable it was possible to navigate the rows of a selectable dataTable via the keyboard. The up/down arrow keys could be used to highlight a row and a space bar click would select it. It also has support to allow selection on navigation. This request is to investigate the possibility of adding this feature to the ace:dataTable.

          Additional functionality requested by the customer:

          If the table has a horizontal scrollbar, it would be nice if the left/right arrow keys scrolled the table horizontally.

          Support for Home/End/PgDown/PgUp would also be nice. For table without a paginator this could scroll the table contents, while for tables with a paginator these keys could cause a page change.

          Note that these requirements have been met via work done in ICE-10798. However, the original JIRA request for arrow key support to move the selection highlight is still outstanding.

          r521280: added support for highlighting adjacent rows with the up and down arrow keys and for selecting the highlighted row when pressing the space or enter keys, when row selection is enabled

          Also, I verified that for tables with a paginator, the home, end, pgup, and pgdn keys already perform their expected functions. For scrollable tables, those keys also scroll the contents as expected.

          Review Notes

          It would be good if this can be demonstrated in one of the showcase demos.
