    UIEvent.isChar

    Non-standard
    This feature is non-standard and is not on a standards track. Do not use it on production sites facing the Web: it will not work for every user. There may also be large incompatibilities between implementations and the behavior may change in the future.

    The UIEvent.isChar read-only property returns a Boolean indicating whether the event produced a key character or not.

    Some key combos may raise events but not produce any character (example: ctrlalt?). When this is the case, isChar returns false. It is used when event handlers need to do something like echo the input on the screen.

    Syntax

    bool = event.isChar;
    

    Example

    if (e.isChar) {
       console.log(e.type);
    }
    

    Specification

    This property is not part of any specification.
