“focus of the editable cell is lost” when transverse between cells / rows in IE8 only. Here are two use cases that cause lost focus of the editable
1. Editing current row. Navigate through current row and edit
cell(Use ENTER key to set on/off edit mode). After hit ENTER key to end edit mode, focus lost.
2. Transverse to different row: focus is lost
The dojo library code is 1.6.1. I have attached sample test page to reproduce the issues.
