KeyTable form integration example


One of possible use of KeyTable is to use a table as a form element (for example a calendar date selector). For this you want to be table to tab into and out of the table, as you would do with any other form element on the page.

The example shown below as a small table as it's third input element, and you can tab between input fields. When the 'focus' reaches the end of the table, hitting tab will take you into the next field.
