Display drop-down list in IE via keyboard? F4 does not work
Posted on 2003-03-28
Is there a standard way in Internet Explorer to get a drop-down list to display its contents using only the keyboard? For a standard Windows app, "F4" expands a drop down list the same as clicking on the down arrow, but in IE "F4" changes focus to the URL address bar and drops it down -- not what I want.
The reason I need this function is I am writing voice recognition scripts for people with hand related disabilities, and most of the voice recognition program's actions are taken via simulating keyboard entry by voice command. In general, mouse clicks are not an option (with some exceptions). If version matters, we use IE 5.5 & 6.
Thanks in advance,
