event.code gives uppercase letter code

Reported by cfenzo | July 9th, 2008 @ 09:27 AM | in 2.0 (closed)

When tracking key events, event.code gives the code for the uppercase letter, no matter what.

Firebug says that the "event" sendt through the Event() initialize() function also has the keyCode and/or charCode for the uppercase letter.


Try typing in "eE".

    • State changed from “new” to “invalid”

    event.code represents the event key code. E and e are the same key, hence the same key code. See event.charCode for the character code.

    For the letter "e" (charcode "101")





    All variables available from mootools gives the charCode for the uppercase letter (in this case "E", charcode "69").
