  1. Hi, Trying to detect altKey combinations in a text area, but it's not working. In the following example, the code detects ctrl-a, but not alt-a. Why? <!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <script> function myFunction(e) { if(e.altKey && e.key=="a") // option-a is not detected console.log("alt-a"); else if(e.ctrlKey && e.key=="a") console.log("ctrl-a"); // ctrl-a is not detected } </script> </head> <body> <p>Press ctrl-a inside the text area. Then, press option-a (alt-a) inside the text area.</p> <textarea id="demo" onkeydown="myFunction(event);"></textarea> </body> </html>
