Enable only numbers in textbox on user input?

Hi, I found this solution for HTML/JavaScript to disable real-time input of anything except numbers in text field:



<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
function numbersOnly (e)
    var keychar;
    var keynum;
    var numcheck;
    if(window.event) 		// IE
    { keynum = e.keyCode; }
    else if(e.which) 		// Netscape/Firefox/Opera
    { keynum = e.which; }
    keychar = String.fromCharCode(keynum);
    numcheck = /\d/;
    return numcheck.test(keychar);


<h2>Soem title</h2></br>
<input type="text" onkeypress="return numbersOnly(event)">


How should I implement this kind of (javascript) functionality for ZK Textbox element?
What client-side event should I be using...?

I read this link1 and this link2, but couldn't quite understand how to process types of client events with input arguments (f.e "onkeypress", assuming it exists in client namespace, because I don't know where to look for a list of available client-side events...)

Don't reinvent the wheel, use the already existing intbox:

<intbox value="42" constraint="no negative,no zero" />

Cheers, Maik

Ok, thanks for the reply Maik :)

The title was obviously misleading, the idea behind the question was actually NOT about inputing only numbers in the text field,
but generaly about client side events with input arguments (like 'onkeypress', 'onkeydown'...).

For example, what if I want to input non-numbers only, or for that matter,
to apply any arbitrary constraint which should be validated on the fly (on user input)?

EDIT: I guess using jQuery is probably the solution, but I still can't find adequate examples
