#1576 closed defect (fixed)

Numeric input fields block move/delete keys

Description

Fields in BASE that only take numeric values are usually blocked for letters. It seems like some other useful keys are also blocked:

  • LEFT/RIGHT arrow
  • HOME/END
  • DELETE
  • CTRL-C/CTRL-V/CTRL-X

Among the non-numeric keys it seems like it is only BACKSPACE that works.

It seems like this is only an issue with Firefox. Internet Explorer doesn't send keypress events for the keys mentioned above. A sideeffect is that it is possible to paste a non-numeric value into the input fields when using IE. But at least the arrows and delete keys are working.

(In [5563]) Fixes #1576: Numeric input fields block move/delete keys

This modifies the Main.getEventCharCode() method so that it returns a predictable result for OnKeyPress events. The new method Main.getEventKeyCode() should be used with OnKeyDown and OnKeyUp events.
