We have a need to capture when a user presses "t" when focused on a DatePicker. When they type "t" I need to set the Date on the DatePicker to today's date.
This is essentially a quick shortcut key. Needed because we have Forms with lots of DatePickers and the users will use keyboard only as they tab their way through the form.
I do have a solution, which I worked like this:
However this approach means adding this code snippet for every DatePicker after the initial configuration of the component. And we have content this is loaded on demand, so I can't create all DatePickers on the initial load of the page.
What I'm hoping for is a more generic solution. From what I've read, keydown isn't an event on DatePicker that I can extend.
I was hoping for something like this to work:
But that was wishful thinking.
If anyone has a solution, I'd appreciate it :)
