jQuery: Bind and unbind the Esc key

Friday, February 4th, 2011

Let’s say you want to allow your dialog boxes to be close when the user press “esc.”

$("body").bind("keyup.myDialog", function(event){
   // 27 == "esc"
   if (event.which == 27) {
      // TODO: close the dialog
      // unbind the event
      $("body").unbind("keyup.myDialog");
   }
});
