In this example we show how to create a keyboard shortcut for an action.
We start with a simple button that loads some content from the server:
<button hx-trigger="click, keyup[altKey&&shiftKey&&key=='D'] from:body" hx-post="/doit">Do It! (alt-shift-D)</button>
Note that the button responds to both the
click event (as usual) and also the keyup event when
alt-shift-D is pressed.
from: modifier is used to listen for the keyup event on the
body element, thus making it a “global” keyboard
You can trigger the demo below by either clicking on the button, or by hitting alt-shift-D.
