Default Using Keyboard in the Webmail Application

Dear Richard,

I would like to use keboard for basic functionalities of the webmail application. For example ctrl + enter sends mail in most of the mail client (atleast yahoo and ms outlook). Its quite unfair to ask this functionality out of CSS but I think it will be a nice addition to the webmail application.

In general, lot of web applications now narrow the gap with their desktop counterparts. As such, it would be the single biggest stumbling block for a web developer to create application that can be completly navigated and worked upon without using a mouse. I don't have hatred for mouse but i guess, you can understand, data entry operators are annoyed to switch between mouse and keyboard.

If my attempt fails, atleast, i hope your next book with Wrox would be "Desktop Applications with CSS".

Awaiting eagerly to hear your comments.

Best Regards


CJBGUY

That functionality would be covered by JavaScript. CSS doesn't provide event handling.

There's not much that you can't do in a web application that you can do in a desktop application. Taking keyboard shortcuts is entirely do-able in a web application. So you can assign Control or Command + Enter to send a message in a browser.

Where you run into limitations with browser development is with security and that sort of thing. But the new Adobe Apollo runtime is looking to remove those barriers as well.

Regards,
Rich
