This is the Java forum; Java and Javascript are two different language; do you want me to move your thread to the Javascript forum?

kind regards,

hmmmm ... you cannot really react on a specific device ... because javascript has no ability to differ between a keyboard or a wii-remote. but you could try to simulate the behaviour ... so which keyevents are triggered when you press the keys in question? please show what you have done so far.

kind regards

actually just started working on it these are the codes for the wiimote buttons..
just want to say some thing for e.g - e.keycode== 175 start focus or is there any tabing option..
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. document.onkeypress = function(e) {
  2.    if (e.keyCode == 175 || e.keyCode == 176 || e.keyCode == 178 || e.keyCode == 177){
  3.     alert("pressing keys")
  4.      return false;
  5.    }
  6. };
