Arrow keys and the datagrid...

    My users want to be able to use the Web Datagrid like an excel spreadsheet.
    This means a fully editible grid with arrow key navigation between cells.
    The grid seems to support horizontal tabbing between cells but nothing for
    the arrow keys. I have googled for sample code but the best that I could
    find was some half completed javascript that captures the key events but
    doesn't quite show me how to use it in the grid. I was wondering if anyone
    has any example code where an editable grid could be navigated from cell to
    cell using the arrow keys (Left, Right, Up and Down).

    Thanks in advance.

    Two reasons... It is an existing ASP.Net application and I have never used
    the Microsoft Office Web Component :) Where can I learn more about the
    Excel object as it can be used in a web components?
