I am making a chrome extension with a keyboard shortcut to open a pop-up and the code below works fine. It’s just that I want the user to be able to specify the keyboard shortcut to open the browser action via the options.html page. How might I go about this?

  • Note: I am not open to using Jquery, other 3rd party plugins, or content-scripts.

I would prefer to use a dropdown w/ the allowed shortcut keys (Ctrl+Shift+Alt, Ctrl+Shift, Ctrl+Alt, Ctrl, & Alt) mixed with a textbox only allowing one key to be entered.

That last part is a sub-question, but the main thing here is:

How Can I make Customizable Keyboard shortcuts within options page?
