    Noob question regarding key events

    Hi I'm a little new to JavaScripting and need some guidance. I wan't to be able to click on an image and have it execute a key-shortcut command. For example: If there's an image called "close.jpg" and you click on it, I want it to execute "Ctrl+W" to close tab. Can anyone provide an example code so that I may look over it?

    Thanks in advance.

    Best regards,
    David

    I don't believe you can do that. If you just want to close the tab/window you can use window.close().

    You can test which keys are pressed, but you can't fake a key press - meaning, you can't control the user's keyboard, otherwise, you would be able to close out programs and windows when the user doesn't want that.
