Please note that I only care about the browser that comes with OS 4.6 as all blackberries accessing the site will be running that version.
I've created a listener:
document.addEventListener('keypress', processKeyPress, false);
I have a function processKeyPress() that will simply display an alert for now. However, this function never gets called. If I look at the same page in firefox, the keypress events are trapped as expected and this function is called.
NOTE: The same thing if I attempt the following:
So I guess the key here is whether or not it's possible for these key presses to get to the page instead of the browser intercepting them.
