Javascript Question

JQuery simulating keypress event on an input field

I have an input field which is dynamically filled with some AJAX, and once it's filled I would like to have JavaScript to automatically press "Enter" (key event 13) on that input inducing another function, which is hidden to me, to trigger.

Would it be possible with jQuery? I have this code right now, which is not working:

$('#myInputId').focus().trigger({ type : 'keypress', which : 13 });


Do you have any clue on what am I doing wrong?

Thanks,

Masiar

Answer

You can create an event object:

$('#myInputId').trigger(jQuery.Event('keypress', { keycode: 13 }));
