Allow binding to keyup event for textboxes
There are many use cases of functions which need to run on keyup for a textbox. The most common use case is probably handling enter when the user is focused on the textbox and hits enter. 

Please create a keyup event emitter for the Textbox, MaskedTextBox and NumericTextBox components.

NOTE: The dropdown for "Category" required to add this idea does not have "Inputs" as an option; the category "New Component" was selected instead.

Hi Kevat,

Indeed the keyup event is not the best option for triggering an event on an input's value, as some changes are not detectable like pasting text from the context menu:

However the developer can hook to any of the HTML built-in events using Kendo Angular TextBox:

Progress Telerik

Love the Telerik and Kendo UI products and believe more people should try them? Invite a fellow developer to become a Progress customer and each of you can get a $50 Amazon gift voucher.

For now, I resorted to finding the input tag for the textbox on page load using jQuery. The following approach may not work for dynamically generated textboxes (you many need to hook into some part of the Angular lifecycle instead of doing this on page load):


export class MyComponent implements OnInit {

	constructor(private renderer: Renderer2) {
	public ngOnInit(): void {
			({ target }) => {
				$("input#myTextBox").keyup(() => { alert("keyup") });



<kendo-maskedtextbox id="#myTextBox"></kendo-maskedtextbox>
