23 Oct 2007, 11:58 PM
Hi, I am playing with resizable and draggable and now i face the following problem: I want to be able to move my draggable object with arrows keys. but i am not able to fire addKeyListener event. I am using custom object of resizable examples. This is what i added:

var custom = new Ext.Resizable('custom', {
minHeight: 50,
preserveRatio: true,
handles: 'all',
var keyFn = function(){
var customEl = custom.getEl();
customEl.addKeyListener(38,ResizableExample.keyFn,ResizableExample); What am i doing wrong? Thank you for your help!!

Have you tried adding your element to a KeyMap?

Thank you for your reply, but i still can not make it work.

I added
// map one key by key code
var map = new Ext.KeyMap("custom", {
key: [10,13],
fn: function(){ alert("Return was pressed"); }
but no results.

What i miss about keyListener is EL argument. If this argument is a window, it has sense that if the window is focussed, the listener works, and otherwise it doesnt. So what should i use as EL argument in my case, where i want to move a draggable and resizable box? Is there a way to refer to the whole site?

Thank you!

Do you mean want to handle those keys when the focus is somewhere besides your element? You could try document or maybe document.body
