@rooks/use-key

Note: Future updates to this package have moved to the main package rooks. All hooks now reside in a single package which you can install using

npm install rooks

or

yarn add rooks

Rooks is completely treeshakeable and if you use only 1 of the 50+ hooks in the package, only that hook will be bundled with your code. Your bundle will only contain the hooks that you need. Cheers!

Build Status

About

keypress, keyup and keydown event handlers as hooks for react.

Installation

npm install --save @rooks/use-key

Importing the hook

import useKey from "@rooks/use-key";

Usage

Basic example with keydown

function Demo() {
  const inputRef = useRef();
  function windowEnter(e) {
    console.log("[Demo 1] Enter key was pressed on window");
  }
  function vowelsEntered(e) {
    console.log("[Demo 1] You typed a vowel");
  }
  function capitalVowelsEntered(e) {
    console.log("[Demo 1] You typed a capital vowel");
  }
  // window is the target
  useKey(["Enter"], windowEnter);
  useKey(["a", "e", "i", "o", "u"], vowelsEntered, {
    target: inputRef
  });
  useKey(["A", "E", "I", "O", "U"], capitalVowelsEntered, {
    target: inputRef
  });
  return (
    <>
      <p>Press enter anywhere to trigger a console.log statement</p>
      <p>Press a,e,i,o,u in the input to trigger a console.log statement</p>
      <p>Press A,E,I,O,U in the input to trigger a different log statement</p>
      <input ref={inputRef} />
    </>
  );
}

render(<Demo />);

Multiple kinds of events

function Demo() {
  const inputRef = useRef();
  function onKeyInteraction(e) {
    console.log("[Demo 2]Enter key", e.type);
  }

  useKey(["Enter"], onKeyInteraction, {
    target: inputRef,
    eventTypes: ["keypress", "keydown", "keyup"]
  });
  return (
    <>
      <p>Try "Enter" Keypress keydown and keyup </p>
      <p>
        It will log 3 events on this input. Since you can listen to multiple
        types of events on a keyboard key.
      </p>
      <input ref={inputRef} />
    </>
  );
}
render(<Demo />);

Conditionally setting handlers

function Demo() {
  const inputRef = useRef();
  const [shouldListen, setShouldListen] = useState(false);
  function toggleShouldListen() {
    setShouldListen(!shouldListen);
  }
  function onKeyInteraction(e) {
    console.log("[Demo 3] Enter key", e.type);
  }

  useKey(["Enter"], onKeyInteraction, {
    target: inputRef,
    eventTypes: ["keypress", "keydown", "keyup"],
    when: shouldListen
  });
  return (
    <>
      <p>
        Enter key events will only be logged when the listening state is true.
        Click on the button to toggle between listening and not listening
        states.{" "}
      </p>
      <p>
        Handy for adding and removing event handlers only when certain
        conditions are met.
      </p>
      <input ref={inputRef} />
      <br />
      <button onClick={toggleShouldListen}>
        <b>{shouldListen ? "Listening" : "Not listening"}</b> - Toggle{" "}
      </button>
    </>
  );
}
render(<Demo />);
