Repeating function helper

Reported by Jake Archibald | July 20th, 2009 @ 08:47 AM | in 2.0

Something to call an action when the mouse button goes down / key is pressed, then repeatedly until the button is lifted. Something like

  repeatDelay: 1,
  repeatInterval: 0.5,
  onStart: startCallback,
  onRepeat: repeatingCallback,
  onStop: endCallback

Would be nice to have a helper in there to cancel the event when the mouse exits a particular element, although this would apply to mouse repeating more than keyboard events.

Some useful info on keypressing http://unixpapa.com/js/key.html
