View Full Version : how to add shift to this script

03-18-2004, 08:12 PM
I created a script to navigate using the f keys, but I need it to include shift + F1 here and I could only figure out how to do this using only the F1 key. Can anyone show me how to make this script to where the user has to use shift + F1:

function handleKeyPress(evt) {
var nbr, chr;
if (window.Event) nbr = evt.which;
else nbr = event.keyCode;
//Opens Link with Shift-F1
else{return true;}
document.onkeydown= handleKeyPress

That key is reserved for the help function and cannot be overriden by any web page.

Okay, how could I do the same thing using shift + u? instead of F1

Look in the "Post a Javascript" forum here and you'll find a recently posted script which you can use to find the keycode of any key. With that you can set up your capture to watch for that particular keycode.

The link "Key Events" in my sig leads to a page that might give you the idea on detecting modifier keys such as SHIFT, ALT and CTRL.
