NN 7 vs IE 6: onkeypress differs

Apr 7th, 2008 23:38
ha mo, Colin Fraser, Paul Thompson,


Do they? This, if you are correct, reflects the different methodologies
adopted by both companies towards implementation of Javascript. I am
sure that a standard exists for the onKeypress event, and you will find
answers in their respective commentaries. Netscape maintains
documentation at  
http://www.netscape.com/eng/mozilla/3.0/handbook/javascript/
and if you want to go into the Dark Side then try 
http://msdn.microsoft.com/workshop/author/dom/domoverview.asp  
however, you may actually have more luck at :

However, I have not had a problem in implementing a cross browser
onKeypress event, so I am not sure why you may be. Try this as a simple
test:
<form>
<textarea onkeypress="javascript: alert('A key was pressed and
released')"></textarea>
</form>
This works for me.
