When a dialog has focus on an html:select the following do not fire: <keyset id="keyset"> <key keycode="VK_ENTER" oncommand="doOKButton()"/> <key keycode="VK_RETURN" oncommand="doOKButton()"/> <key keycode="VK_ESCAPE" oncommand="doCancelButton()"/> </keyset> ENTER and RETURN will fire if you click on the background of dialog (outside the html:select), and ESCAPE never fires.
Marking as blocker since 9635 is depending on this.
The enter and return part of this where you have to click in the window before the keys will work is a dupe of 9701. The inability to get VK_ESCAPE is either a platform issue or a case of some other event listener in the specific xul case where the event is not being received consuming the event. I tested on Windows and it sends a VK_ESCAPE message just fine. I'm going change the description to reflect that this bug will just track the VK_ESCAPE problem (the other parts being in 9701). I'll need either verification that this is a platform issue or a more specific test case since this works for me on Windows.
No reponse on platform issue. I'm getting Windows events just fine. Since the listed blocked bug is fixed I'm closing worksforme. If anyone has better platform information please reopen with test case.
