    });
    tabPanel.registerKeyHandler("space", function (e) {

    });
}
Angular
TypeScript
import { ..., ViewChild } from '@angular/core';
import { DxTabPanelModule, DxTabPanelComponent } from 'devextreme-angular';
// ...
export class AppComponent {
    @ViewChild(DxTabPanelComponent) tabPanel: DxTabPanelComponent
    registerKeyHandlers () {
        this.tabPanel.instance.registerKeyHandler("backspace", function (e) {
            // The argument "e" contains information on the event
        });
        this.tabPanel.instance.registerKeyHandler("space", function (e) {
            // ...
        });
