Pause menu in JavaScript?

I’m trying to make a pause menu for a game me and my friends are making, I was wondering if js has a simple way to make a keypress function that pauses the game? are they any? thank you!

Answer

Try adding an event listener with the key you want to have the game pause:

// adds an event listener to the document that listens for key presses
document.addEventListener("keydown", function(e) {
// if desired key pressed, pause 
  if (e.key === "key code for key you want to execute pause function") {
    pause();
// else do nothing
   } else {}
});

To find the key code for the key you want to execute the function, use keycode.info.
