[Xerte] How do I set up a keypress interaction in Xerte?

I'm trying to set up a keypress interaction, so a user can press Enter
or Tab instead of clicking a button.

I have an Interaction icon with a Button response working fine, and to
that same interaction I added an Event response. For the eventName I
used onKeyDown(), for the icon property I used the id of the Interaction
icon. To the Event response icon I added a script icon with the

keyPressed = Key.getCode();

if ((keyPressed == 13) || (keyPressed == 9)) { // Enter or Tab pressed

Of course, nothing happens when I press Enter or Tab. What would be the
correct way to do this?
