onkeypress event problem

I have several <input type = 'text' ....> where I would like to allow
certain hotkeys to auto fill the data.

ie shift + 1, shitf + 2 etc etc

so I have

<input type = 'text' name = 'test_input' onkeypress =
'Check_Keys(thi s);'>

function Check_Keys(id)
if (window.event.s hiftKey)
switch (window.event.k eyCode) {
case 33: // Shift + 1
id.value = "You hit Shift + 1";
return false;
return true;

Now if I hit shift +1 it fills the input with You hit Shift +1 but it
also appends a "!"

How can I tell it not to append the last keystroke?

I was able to get it to not append the keystroke however now I want to
force an onChange event to occur. How can I go about doing this?

In the Check_Keys function:

id.fireEvent("o nchange");

I have included a file below that tests onKeyPress in Opera 7.11. I am getting peculiar behavior.

I'm looking to perform input validation on an HTML input text element; specifically, I'm looking to prevent anything other than numerical characters from being entered. I've got it working just fine for English characters by using an 'onkeypress' event handler, where basically all that is done is a regular expression check of the character represented by window.event.keyCode against a string containing "0123456789". The problem I'm...

I am struggling to catch kestrokes within an Internet Explorer 6 window. My window happens to be displaying three frames, though I suspect a similar problem would arise with a single document. The "<body.." tag in each frame includes an "onKeyPress" handler to catch and act on key presses. And if I focus the window by clicking on the content of one of the documents, keystrokes are sent to the handler on its "<body..." tag.

Hi. I have a problem with assigning an onkeypress-function to dynamically created input-boxes.I want to put the content of an input-field into a tag-list when the user hits enter. This works fine the first time (when the input-field is created in a non-dynamical way). The next input-field is created dynamically by a function that is called when the user hits enter (the previously generated input-field will be hidden). Then I'm trying...

Hi I am trying to implement the Microsoft Ajax.NET extensions to perform a lookup on a key press of a text box. What this will do is once a user enters a letter into the textbox, this will filter a list from a database and populate some filtered options for the user to choose in a seperate listbox. Any subsequent key presses will further filter this result set.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
