InputEvent.data

This is an experimental technology
Check the Browser compatibility table carefully before using this in production.

The data read-only property of the InputEvent interface returns a DOMString with the inserted characters. This may be an empty string if the change doesn't insert text (such as when deleting characters, for example).
