    Javascript: Key Detection

    I have a function that is called on the onkeyup event for a textarea:
    lArea.onkeyup = updateLivePreview;
    in my updateLivePreview function I need to check if the key that was released was infact the Enter button, if so do x else do y. How would I acheive this?
    Build a man a fire and he is warm for a day.
    Set a man on fire and he is warm for the rest of his life.

    Hi Sammo

    Try this

    function updateLivePreview(e)
    var code;
    if (!e) var e = window.event;
    if (e.keyCode) code = e.keyCode;
    else if (e.which) code = e.which;
    if (code == 13){
    alert("Enter is pressed");
