    Do you have an example of deleting a node by keyboard button click?

    Hello Niclas,

    You can achieve this by attaching OnClientKeyPressing  event. Here is a sample code which deletes the node on Delete key press.
    function OnClientKeyPressing(Sender, args)
         if (args.get_domEvent().keyCode() == 127)//Checking for delete key
               var node = args.get_node()

    Hi Cyril,

    Actually they both should work for the "Delete" key:

    <script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">
    function detectspecialkeys(e) {
                var evtobj = window.event ? event : e;            
                if (evtobj.keyCode == 46) {                                     
    document.onkeyup = detectspecialkeys
