I am running eLinks with the SpiderMonkey engine compiled in, and I am having some trouble using the onkeypress event, when it's registered for the document as a whole. That is, I have a piece of script at the bottom of the page that registers the onkeypress event for the document:
Earlier in the document is a script defining the evalKey function, which takes the keyboard event and analyzes it, to determine if a certain key was pressed and take some action:
//do some analysis
This works just fine in Firefox/Mozilla, and I can trigger the function in eLinks with an onclick event registered to a key, but it doesn't work in eLinks with the onkeypress event registered to the document. Is this due to a limitation in eLinks's document support, or a problem in the code supporting the onkeypress event, or a limitation in eLinks's support of the event model?
My next step is to try registering the onkeypress event with the text field, but that's less than ideal -- I'd like to be able to capture and analyze the user's keystrokes whether the text field has focus or not.
Thanks in advance for any help or advice you can offer,
