Description

Elements of the block

codes element

Provides an object with a set of constant names for frequently used keyboard codes.

Properties and methods of the object

Type: String.

The name values (object properties) are the key codes. Using meaningful names instead of the key codes makes the code easier to understand.

For example, the _onKeyDown method uses the names of the UP and DOWN keys when checking the keyCode field for an event object:

modules.define('input', ['i-bem-dom', 'keyboard__codes'], function(provide, bemDom, keyCodes) {

provide(bemDom.declBlock(this.name, /** @lends input.prototype */{
    onSetMod : {
        js : {
            inited : function() {
                this._domEvents().on('keydown', this._onKeyDown);
            }
        }
    },

    _onKeyDown : function(e) {
        if((e.keyCode === keyCodes.UP || e.keyCode === keyCodes.DOWN) && !e.shiftKey) {
            // ...
        }
    }
}));
});

The following properties are available:

  • BACKSPACE

  • ESC
  • SPACE
  • PAGE_UP

  • END
