Re: Send event for keydown

Yeah. That happens to me more often than I care to admit.  :) 

When I first started with GWT I wrestled with the same problem, and someone on this list showed me how to do it. As I recall, the key was adding the Scheduler (though this was before GWT 1.5 and it was called something else then).

This KeyPressHandler will change the text to upper case as the user types:

public class ForceUpperCase implements KeyPressHandler {
  public void onKeyPress(KeyPressEvent event) {
    final TextBoxBase tbb = (TextBoxBase) event.getSource();
    Scheduler.get().scheduleDeferred(new Scheduler.ScheduledCommand() {
       public void execute() {


textBoxBase.addKeyPressHandler(new ForceUpperCase());

In a sub class for a textbox i try to convert lower case to upper case. This works ok but i would like to send the upper case as a Event.

// NativeEvent down = Document.get().createKeyDownEvent(false, false, true, false, keyCode);
// DomEvent.fireNativeEvent(down, this, this.getElement());

But this does not seem to trigger the browser event.

Now i do substring and set value. The user does not see this but i feel it's a bit overkill.

Anybody any ideas.?
