Hi, I'm newbie with & just have self-learning a few months ago...
I've tried to understand how to implement my idea into .net programming. I've done all parts except the keystroke part.
I would like to calculate the keyhold time of a keypress in ms & also the inter-key latency time between 2 keys.

The idea is as below:
key 'A' is pressed (keydown) - record keyhold time
key 'A' is depressed (keyup) - record keyhold time
key 'A' is pressed & key 'B' is depressed - record inter-key latency time

And also, I need ideas how to put my keystroke data into database. Should I record the key character also??
Example: A.down.time || A.up.time || A.B.time

Tq. . . v(^_^)//

.NET really has nothing to do with it. Your events happen on the client, and certainly for you to track things like that, you need to do it on the client, in javascript.

You can store the key data any way you like, but it won't be one key at a time, surely ? If it is, you'd need to use AJAX, and that seems like another complication for a beginner.

soo, I need to use javascript to capture the keystroke data rite? but i don't understand your statement sir --> "it won't be one key at a time"...
And AJAX is new to me... (Y_Y)
