ISSUE-157: Problems with initKeyboardEvent


Problems with initKeyboardEvent

HISTORICAL: DOM3 Events [All Bugs and Issues use Bugzilla:]
Raised by:

2) There are a couple of problems with initKeyboardEvent(). First, when
it first apperas in the gray box, it has a repeat argument. But down
below, where the method arguments are each explained the repeat argument
is missing. Second, I don't understand how the char and keyCode
properties of the KeyboardEvent are initialized. Are they derived from
the keyArg argument to initKeyboardEvent(). If so, perhaps you could
add a sentence to the description of that argument: "KeyboardEvent.char
and KeyboardEvent.keyCode are both derived from this argument." (Or
something to that effect).
