- Document Object Model (DOM) Level 3 Events Specification, Section 5.2.6
The IDOMKeyboardEvent::keyCode property represents the character code during the HTMLFrameSiteEvents::onkeypress event and the unmodified scan code of the key during HTMLFrameSiteEvents::onkeydown and HTMLFrameSiteEvents::onkeyup events. To detect whether the Alt, Ctrl, Meta, or Shift key is also pressed, see the IDOMKeyboardEvent::altKey, IDOMKeyboardEvent::ctrlKey, IDOMKeyboardEvent::metaKey, or IDOMKeyboardEvent::shiftKey property of the event.
The IDOMKeyboardEvent::keyCode property is provided for compatibility only. The latest version of the Document Object Model (DOM) Events specification defines a IDOMKeyboardEvent::key property instead.
