I am currently developing a UWP application and I have a WebView control, which a user interacts with. In this WebView, the user can format some text, and I would like for
CTRL + I to apply italics formatting to any selected text.
CTRL + I the application formats the text (Which is handled using jQuery on the visited site), however, any selected text is replaced with a tab character.
I am aware that the
CTRL + I keypress event results in keycode 9, which corresponds to a tab character, however, I am wondering if there is a way to disable this interaction?
I have tried intercepting both
PreviewKeyDown events, however with no success. The events never fired, and I am assuming this is because I am entering text inside a webview.
I also checked that the character is not inserted, when opening the visited page, using a normal web browser.
Below is the context of the webview.
