Thetype exposes the following members.
The character generated by the keystroke.
True if the focus is currently on an editable field on the page. This is useful for determining if standard key events should be intercepted.
Indicates whether the event is considered a "system key" event (see http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms646286(VS.85).aspx for details). This value will always be false on non-Windows platforms.
Bit flags describing any pressed modifier keys. See CfxEventFlags for values.
The actual key code genenerated by the platform.
The type of keyboard event.
Same as |character| but unmodified by any concurrently-held modifiers (except shift). This is useful for working out shortcut keys.
The Windows key code for the key event. This value is used by the DOM specification. Sometimes it comes directly from the event (i.e. on Windows) and sometimes it's determined using a mapping function. See WebCore/platform/chromium/KeyboardCodes.h for the list of values.
