Detect input/textarea active


Recommended Posts

Is there any way in jQuery or Javascript that you can detect if the current focused/activce element is a textarea or input area. The reason for this is I need to use hotkeys but they will be standard keys (i.e. not control+key) so I need to do a key listener and then make it ignore the keypress and fall through if the user is inputting text. I can do this by testing the ID for the ID's of all mt inputs/textareas, but that seems to be a tad long winded. Be great if there was something like $(document).currentactiveID But can't seem to find anything As always any help much appreciated
