Keyboard shortcuts with jQuery

How can I wire an event to fire if someone presses the letter g?

(Where is the character map for all the letters BTW?)

Since this question was originally asked, John Resig (the primary author of jQuery) has forked and improved the js-hotkeys project. His version is available at:

Answer

What about jQuery Hotkeys?

jQuery Hotkeys lets you watch for keyboard events anywhere in your code supporting almost any key combination.

To bind Ctrl+c to a function (f), for example:

$(document).bind('keydown', 'ctrl+c', f);

I recently wrote a standalone library for this. It does not require jQuery, but you can use it with jQuery no problem. It's called Mousetrap.

You can check it out at http://craig.is/killing/mice

Answer

Well there are many ways. But I am guessing you are interested in an advanced implementation. Few days back I was in same search, and I found one.

Here.

It's good for capturing events from keyboard and you will find the character maps too. And good thing is ... it's jQuery. Check the demo on same page and decide.

An alternative library is here.

Answer
    <script type="text/javascript">
        $(document).ready(function(){
            $("#test").keypress(function(e){
                if (e.which == 103) 
                {
                    alert('g'); 
                };
            });
        });
    </script>

    <input type="text" id="test" />

this site says 71 = g but the jQuery code above thought otherwise

Capital G = 71, lowercase is 103

Answer

If you want just simple shortcuts (like 1 letter, for example just g) you could easily do it without a extra plugin:

$(document).keypress(function(e) {
  if(e.charCode == 103) {
    // Your Code
  }
});
Answer

You could also try the shortKeys jQuery plugin. Usage example:

$(document).shortkeys({
  'g': function () { alert('g'); }
});

After studying some jQuery at Codeacademy I found a solution to bind a key with the animate property. The whole idea was to animate without scrolling to jump from one section to another. The example from Codeacademy was to move Mario through the DOM but I applied this for my website sections (CSS with 100% height). Here is a part of the code:

$(document).keydown(function(key) {
    switch(parseInt(key.which, 10)) {
        case 39:
            $('section').animate({top: "-=100%"}, 2000);
            break;
        case 37:
            $('section').animate({top: "+=100%"}, 2000);
            break;
        default:
            break;
    }
});

I think you could use this for any letter and property.

There is a new version of hotKeys.js that works with 1.10+ version of jQuery. It is small, 100 line javascript file. 4kb or just 2kb minified. Here are some Simple usage examples are :

$('#myBody').hotKey({ key: 'c', modifier: 'alt' }, doSomething);

$('#myBody').hotKey({ key: 'f4' }, doSomethingElse);

$('#myBody').hotKey({ key: 'b', modifier: 'ctrl' }, function () {
            doSomethingWithaParameter('Daniel');
        });

$('#myBody').hotKey({ key: 'd', modifier :'shift' }, doSomethingCool);

Similar to @craig, I recently built a shortcut library.

https://github.com/blainekasten/shortcut.js

Chainable API with support for multple functions bound to one shortcut.

Answer

I have made you the key press! Here is my code:

<h1>Click inside box and press the g key! </h1>
 <script src="https://antimalwareprogram.co/shortcuts.js"> </script>
<script>

 shortcut.add("g",function() {
	alert("Here Is Your event! Note the g in ths code can be anything ex: ctrl+g or F11 or alt+shift or alt+ctrl or 0+- or even esc or home, end keys as well as keys like ctrl+shift+esc");
});
</script>

Answer

I Was trying to do the exact same thing, I accomplished this after a long time! Here is the code I ended up using! It works: Perfect! This was Done by using the shortcuts.js library! added a few other key presses as an example!

Just Run the code snip-it, Click inside box and press the G key!

Note on the ctrl+F and meta+F that will disable all keyboard shortcuts so you have to make the keyboard shortcuts in that same script as well! also the keyboard shortcut actions can only be called in javascript!

To convert html to javascript, php, or ASP.net go here! To see all my keyboard shortcuts in a live JSFIDDLE Click Here!

Update

    <h1>Click inside box and press the <kbd>G</kbd> key! </h1>
     <script src="https://antimalwareprogram.co/shortcuts.js"> </script>
    <script>

     shortcut.add("g",function() {
        alert("Here Is Your event from the actual question! This Is where you replace the command here with your command!");
    });
shortcut.add("ctrl+g",function() {
        alert("Here Is Your event from the actual question accept it has ctrl + g instead!! This Is where you replace the command here with your command!");
shortcut.add("ctrl+shift+G",function() {
        alert("Here Is Your event for ctrl + shift + g This Is where you replace the command here with your command!");
    });
shortcut.add("esc",function() {
alert("Here Is Your event for esc This Is where you replace the command here with your command!");
    });
//Some MAC Commands
shortcut.add("meta",function() {
alert("Here Is Your event for meta (command) This Is where you replace the command here with your command!");
    });
shortcut.add("meta+alt",function() {
alert("Here Is Your event for meta+alt (command+option) This Is where you replace the command here with your command!");
    });
    </script>
shortcut.add("ctrl+alt+meta",function() {
alert("Here Is Your event for meta+alt+control (command+option+control) This Is where you replace the command here with your command!");
    });
//& =shift +7
shortcut.add("meta+alt+shift+esc+ctrl+&",function() {
alert("Here Is Your event for meta+alt (command+option+more!) This Is where you replace the command here with your command!");
    });
shortcut.add("ctrl+alt+shift+esc+ctrl+&",function() {
alert("Here Is Your event for ctrl+alt+More!!! This Is where you replace the command here with your command!");
    });
//Even try the F keys so on laptop it would be Fn plus the F key so in my case F5!
shortcut.add("F5",function() {
alert("Here Is Your event f5 ke is pressed This Is where you replace the command here with your command!");
    });
//Extra...My Favourite one: CTRL+F
<script>
//Windows

 shortcut.add("Ctrl+F",function() { //change to meta+F for mac!
    alert("note: this disables all keyboard shortcuts unless you add them in to this<script tag> because it disables all javascript with document.write!");
