sorry for doubleposting here. but i posted it to the wrong forum. so please
delete the posting in the menu forum if possible.

is it possible to define global keyboard shortcuts for telerik controls?

e.g. i'd like to display a context menu centered on my site if the user pressed str + [someKey]. is there a telerik way for registering global shortcuts or do i have do use some other lib?

Hello pantarhei,

You can use the following:

<script type="text/javascript"
function pageLoad() 
    if (window.addEventListener) 
    { 
        document.addEventListener("keyup", onKeyUpHandler, false); 
    } 
    else if (window.attachEvent) 
    { 
        document.attachEvent("onkeyup", onKeyUpHandler); 
    } 
 
function onKeyUpHandler(e) 
    if (!e) 
        e = window.event; 
         
    var code = e.keyCode; 
 
    //Control + m is pressed 
    if (e.ctrlKey && code == 77) 
    { 
        $find("<%= RadContextMenu1.ClientID %>").showAt(300, 300); 
    }        
</script>  

Note that there are already a lot of predefined key combinations so you have to find a unique combination.

Hello Veselin,

thx a lot for your reply. in the meantime i figured out how to get things done.
quite similiar to your approach.

js is still rather new to me, thus i don't see the easiest solutions as fast as i'd like to.
thx for your help.
