Listen for Key Combinations

This pair of actions teaches DayBack to listen for the keys you’re holding down and then let you test for these in your custom actions. A common use case for this would be to change what happens when you click on an event if the “z” key is held down. 


Trigger   One BeforeCalendarRandered app action, and one OnEventClick event action.
Script The two actions are available here:
Options Open in new window: No  Prevent default action: Probably

Note that DayBack is already listening for the shift and option keys, and the command key is reserved by the browser, so using “regular” keys is recommended here.
