SpreadJS supports many keyboard actions, such as pressing the left arrow key to navigate to the left, pressing the Delete key to clear values, and so on. The key actions use the key map to link the key and the action.

You can add your own key by using the register method to link the keydown event to an action, as shown in the following code: Then press the W, A, S, and D keys to navigate, similar to the up, left, down, and right arrow keys.
window.onload = function() { var spread = new GC.Spread.Sheets.Workbook(document.getElementById('ss'), { sheetCount: 1 }); initSpread(spread); }; function initSpread(spread) { var sd = dataSource; var sheet = spread.getActiveSheet(); if (sd.length > 0) { sheet.setDataSource(sd); } sheet.setColumnWidth(0, 160); sheet.setColumnWidth(1, 70); sheet.setColumnWidth(2, 90); sheet.setColumnWidth(3, 110); sheet.setColumnWidth(4, 80); sheet.setColumnWidth(6, 110); document.getElementById('addCToKeyMap').addEventListener('click', function() { var spreadNS = GC.Spread.Sheets.Commands; var commandManager = spread.commandManager(); commandManager.register( 'customNavigationUp', spreadNS.navigationUp, 'W'.charCodeAt(0), false, false, false, false ); commandManager.register( 'customNavigationLeft', spreadNS.navigationLeft, 'A'.charCodeAt(0), false, false, false, false ); commandManager.register( 'customNavigationDown', spreadNS.navigationDown, 'S'.charCodeAt(0), false, false, false, false ); commandManager.register( 'customNavigationRight', spreadNS.navigationRight, 'D'.charCodeAt(0), false, false, false, false ); }); }
