With jQuery, how to trigger event on tabulation key?

In jQuery, you can trigger an event when the tabulation key is pressed with the following code :

// Trigger event when a key is pressed
$('#myID').on('keydown', function(event)
	// Get key code
	var code = event.keyCode || event.which;
	// If the tabulation key is pressed, code = 9
	if (code === 9) {  
    	// Do something, the tabulation key is down

The call of ´╗┐´╗┐event.preventDefault(); prevents the default behavior of the browser on tabulation key (set focus to next element), it is optional.
