Hi All,

I am developing a quite complex asp.net website. Infact, the website is a controller website for many others.

In order to keep the design quite clean (for more senior staff that have a massive interface) I am looking to implement some form of keyboard plus click abilities.

For example, clicking a button will do x. However, clicking the button while holding cntrl+shift+x will do y.

Is this possible? I've been hunting for days and can't find any solution. My original idea was to use a windows form control in an asp.net webpage, however, I just can't get it to work.

Thanks.

HTML has some forms control ... somewhat ... in Access keys [w3.org]. But that doesn't sound like it is quite what you have in mind, if I understand you correctly. Another option may be to use client-side scripting (JavaScript) to monitor keystrokes and keystroke combination.

Just some ideas and a little bump to see if anybody else has some options :-)
