Unit 3 Events



In this course, I was introduced to the function keypress and in the jQuery course, I was shown the keydown function. What is the difference between these two functions? Thanks.


Hi Tyoungg,

keydown() and keyup() return the keycode, which is the same whether the character is uppercase or lowercase. keypress() returns the character code, which changes between uppercase and lowercase.
I hope this helps :slightly_smiling:
