hello,
I have a gwt VerticalPanel class that i need to handel KeyDown events for it.
the method i used to implement keyboard handler in my class is:
i add :

to constructor
then i override method onBrowserEvent() to handle key down event.



however this method doesn’t work for this VerticalPanel class which extends a VerticalPanel.no KeyDown Event is fired when i press a key!

there are specific gwt widgets that support KeyDownHandler like Button etc..VerticalPanel is not one of them..so we need a work around to register a KeyDownHandler on a class extending VerticalPanel.
can you suggest an idea or hint?
thanks

thanks

Hi,

You need to implement the HasKeyDownHandlers interface in order to add the key down handler capability to your vertical panel.

yes I solved it by wrapping VerticalPanel inside a FocusPane. gwt Focuspanel support most events handlers including key events.
thanks for the reply.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
