CopperSpice API  1.7.2
Accelerator Keys

GUI applications need to define accelerator keys for specific actions and CopperSpice fully supports this process. Platform defaults for key bindings can be assigned using QKeySequence::StandardKey.

The list shown below is the Microsoft recommendation for accelerator keys. These actions are accessed by using the Alt key. There are several other keys and actions which use modifier keys other than Alt. Refer to the Microsoft and "The Open Group" (they maintain the POSIX standard) documentation for additional details. You may choose to use different or conflicting commands in your application.

The letter shown in bold is the Microsoft recommended accelerator key. As an example, the Apply button should use the following text:

QAbstractButton::setText( tr("&Apply") );
