Capturing Esc key from the player


I have the following situation: the player is embeded in a modal popup. If the player is set to Full Screen, when I press Esc in IE it also closes the modal popup.

This doesn't happen in FF or Chrome.

Any thoughts on how to fix this ?

Currently, the “esc in fullscreen” option is something that is configurable on a per-browser basis. It sounds like the modal you’re utilizing may also be listening for this keypress as well. As such, I would suggest looking into the settings for this modal module.

I'm not entirely sure what you mean. The modal is indeed listening to Esc however the Esc key doesn't reach the listener in Chrome/FF .

So I was thinking about a way to capture the event when it's pressed in the player and stop propagation.

Do you have a link to where you’re running this? This might just be operational differences in browsers and their behavior.
