AME Forms Designer/LiveCycle Designer question:

Is it possible to add keyboard access to trigger the 'Mouse Up' action for Regular or Execute buttons?

For submit button, I can use Tab key to navigate to the button, then press Enter/Return to trigger the button action.

However for other buttons this doesn't seem to work?

Is this something that can be scripted in?

Hi Cari,

The mouseUp and mouseDown event triggers don't have a key equivalent bound to them, but the click event does.

If you move your script from the mouseUp to the click event it should then trigger with the Enter/Return key when it gets focus (e.g. from tabbing to it).

I've attached a simple example showing how it is ignored on mouseDown and mouseUp but triggered on click.

Hope this answers your question.

Awesome. Thanks so much!  Worked beautifully.

User can now:

Tab across to button, press Cmd+Return/Ctrl+Enter to trigger the button.
