Not able to listen to keyboard keys at start of game

HI,

I am using this code to listen to keyboard on my main.js
onLoad: function () {
cc.systemEvent.on(cc.SystemEvent.EventType.KEY_DOWN, this.onKeyDown, this);
},

onKeyDown: function (event) {
console.log(event);
},

Until I click in my canvas from mouse this listener doesnot listen to keyboard events.

I guess others javascript listener are disable by cocos by default. I tried using them to simulate a click or to change focous but they didnot worked.

I have the same problem in Cocos Creator 1st basic game. They suggest to click on the canvas while running it.Even after I do that, it does not work for me. Have no clue how to fix that. I’m using Windows 10.
thank you

You got to listen at your current scene. Not at main.js.

And for web, the current tab must be active (may need a tap on the page as well) in order to capture keystoke or play sound. Thats for security.
