Hello & Thanks.

Not working as I expected

Intercepts enter-key pressed , but doesn't prevent :

            event.preventDefault();
            stopImmediatePropagation();

Here is mini code :

         window.addEventListener("keyup", onPress_ENTER, false);

         }
      </script>
      <script>
      function onPress_ENTER(){
        var keyPressed = event.keyCode || event.which;

        //if ENTER is pressed
        if(keyPressed==13)
        {
//            alert('enter pressed');
            event.preventDefault();
            stopImmediatePropagation();
        }
        else
        {
            return false;
        }
} 

Here is the whole code:

<!DOCTYPE  html>  
<html>
   <head>
      <meta charset="UTF-8">
      <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
      <title>MyStory.html</title>

         </a>
         still to do: intercept 'enter-key' replace with 8 spaces ELSE just cancel it .

Do your mean like this ?

         window.addEventListener("keyup", onPress_ENTER, false);

         }
      </script>
      <script>
      function onPress_ENTER(event){
        var keyPressed = event.keyCode || event.which;

        //if ENTER is pressed
        if(keyPressed==13)
        {
//            alert('enter pressed');
            event.preventDefault();
            stopImmediatePropagation();
        }
        else
        {
            return false;
        }
} 

Thanks

Hmm... 

When I changed the listener to 

window.addEventListener("keydown", onPress_ENTER, false);

and your change

      function onPress_ENTER(event){

All works perfectly ! 

I am thinking that 'keyup' was too late to cancel .

Is that correct ?

Thanks

From what I've observed, keys insert their characters on `keydown`.
Preventing propagation on `keyup` wouldn't do anything as all the events already propagated on a different one.
