Hey Guys,

I made my On screen keyboard finally. The JS file and the HTML files are given below. the attached files are the images for the keyboard.

Now i wan't to add three functionalities in the keyboard and i'm confused in how to do it :

1. I need to show the Number keys only and hide rest of the keyboard at certain places. So, how can i do it?

2. I need to give a PRESSED effect to the keys. As in if i a key is entered then it should show that it has been pressed .

3. Continuing on the Pressed effect : When the CAPSLOCK is turned on, the key should remain pressed until it is turned off.

Hope i'm clear guys.

KEYBOARD.JS

following will change the bgcolor of the cells when buttons are pressed

function pressSelect(){
	var keyStr = (""+standardKeys[currentRow][currentKey]);
	if(capsStatus=="OFF"){
		keyStr = keyStr.toLowerCase();
	}else{
		keyStr = keyStr.toUpperCase();
	}
	if(checkForSpecialChars(standardKeys[currentRow][currentKey])) {
		inputField.value = inputField.value + keyStr;
document.getElementById("key_" + keyStr).style.color="red"; //change key color to red
setTimeout("document.getElementById('key_' " + keyStr + "').style.color=''",500); //reset color after half a second
 
}
}
 
function checkForSpecialChars(keyText){
	for(var specialIndex=0;specialIndex<specialChar.length;specialIndex++){
		for(var index2=0;index2<specialChar[specialIndex].length;index2++){
			if(keyText==specialChar[specialIndex][index2]){
				if(keyText=="CAPS" && capsStatus == "ON"){
					capsStatus = "OFF";
document.getElementById("key_CAPS").style.color="";
				}else if(keyText=="CAPS" && capsStatus == "OFF")
				{
					capsStatus = "ON";
document.getElementById("key_CAPS").style.color="red";
				}
				return false;
			}
		}
