In this article, we will see how to run the code snippet on the keypress event using jQuery. The keypress event is triggered when the keyboard button is pressed by the user.

Syntax:

$(selector).keypress()

In the below example, we are creating a textarea element and when the user starts pressing a key to writing some content on textarea, the keypress event is triggered. When this event is triggered, the CSS styles are added to the element. 

Example:

HTML




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  
<head>
    <title>

      </title>
  
    <script src=
      </script>
  
    <script>
        $(document).ready(function () {
            $("textarea").keypress(function () {
                $("textarea").css({
                    background: "green",
                    color: "white",
                });
            });
        });
    </script>
</head>
  
<body>
    <center>
        <h1 style="color: green">GeeksforGeeks</h1>
        <h3>
