Hi all,

Is there a keypress event in formspider? I am not talking about the key event which enables you to program specific keys. I am talking about capturing the last key that was pressed by the user. Please direct me to the tutorial/demo if there is one.

Thank you.

Hi George,

The event that you described does not exist in Formspider. Can you please explain why you need this event? Note that triggering such an event requires an access to the db server each time a key is pressed.

Hi Ibrahim,

I asked for this because some companies like to audit the performance of the workers by the number of keyboard impressions they make during a period of time. Also they want to measure the efficiency of workers by finding out how many times they correct the errors while typing. If this is available, the facility can be applied one user at time and that conditionally because of the server round trip.

Hi George,

Thank you for the details. Unfortunately, this feature is not currently available in Formspider.
