OnKeyPress

The OnKeyPress event handler is raised when the user presses a keyboard key while the textbox extended via the RadInputManager has focus.

The signature of the event handler is unified and is the same as in the other client side event handlers available for the control. It receives two arguments - the sender which raised the event, and another argument, which gives access to additional client side methods.

Below is a small code snippet, which demonstrates how to get the key character which the user entered in a textbox:

function OnKeyPress(sender, eventArgs)
{
    //get the character value that was entered
    alert(eventArgs.get_keyCharacter());
}
