Re: Column headers are not navigable in grid

Jonathan and Bryan, thank you so much for your valuable suggestions.

Let me describe the behavior in the other table where the sort is
accessible. All the column headers in the first row is navigable with tab
key where users can't arrow down/up or left/ right and the second column is
having sort icon. Able to toggle it with enter key. But the concern is only
after reaching row 2 arrow key navigation is possible in the table but not
able to use arrow keys in row1. Is that ok if arrow key navigation is not
possible when focus is on column headers? Or instead of tab navigation the
same arrow key navigation should be enable through column headers also.
