KeyDownEvent Class

An event that occurs when a key is pressed while the RichEdit's document has focus.

Declaration

export class KeyDownEvent extends RichEditEvent<KeyboardEventArgs>

Remarks

You can define the KeyDown event handler either at the server side, at the client side, or at runtime.

Use the OnKeyDown(String) method to specify the event handler.

@(Html.DevExpress().RichEdit("richEdit")
 .OnKeyDown("function(s,e) {
   console.log('The pressed key is: ' + e.htmlEvent.key);
 }")
 // ...

The event handler receives an argument of the KeyboardEventArgs type. The argument's properties provide information specific to this event.
