About This Page

We're reporting on the keydown event here. More specifically, we're looking at the 'which' property. If you'd like to know more about key presses, and why they're confusing as heck, here are some references.

If you'd like to contribute to this site on github, by all means, go right on ahead.

Acknowledgments

jQuery is grabbing the event info for keypresses.

This library by Tim Oxley is translating the keycodes back into the key that was pressed.

The table was re-created from this site.
