Row loses focus after selecting value on dropdown
I have dropdown in a repeating grid and when a value is selected the focus is moving off the row. The requirement is to be able to tab to the next cell in the row after selecting a value in the dropdown. I have a determined that the Display-Refresh action is what is causing this behavior. Is there a way to bring focus back to the current row after the refresh? I must have the refresh action to update other cells in the row as neccessary. Our current version is 7.1.6. Thank you.

Thank you for the response. I tried both approaches but I am still having an issue. The row is now in focus but the cell is not in focus so I am not able to "tab" to the next cell. I have attached two screenshots. Once showing the expected behavior and the other showing the current issue. Thank you.

From your screenshots I see that the grid has the inline edit mode "click row to edit" . Any refresh will cause the grid to change back to a read only mode until clicked.
What I would suggest is to change the inline edit mode to "Rows always editable" and have a refresh current row on change of the dropdown. The focus will then remain on the dropdown and a tab out will focus on the next cell.
