    @ViewChild(DxNavBarComponent) navBar: DxNavBarComponent
    registerKeyHandlers () {
        this.navBar.instance.registerKeyHandler("backspace", function (e) {
            // The argument "e" contains information on the event
        });
        this.navBar.instance.registerKeyHandler("space", function (e) {
