I built a browser extension that extends twitter.com. It opens a jQuery UI modal window, and has some text inputs. When I type in those inputs, it works, except for the J and K keys. Those keys are part of some custom Twitter event (scrolling between tweets). I can get all the keys to actually type the letter into the box except for those two.
I want to know how to unbind the
keypress stuff for those two keys so that I can get those two letters to type. Any ideas on how to unbind them? I have tried catching the event and preventing the default on it...didn't help. I have caught it and returned true/false, also no help. Please let me know.
