Keyboard shortcut and hotkey
A control in a window or page can be associated with an alphanumeric character, a key or combination of keys ("keyboard shortcut"), etc.
This shortcut gives direct access to the control.
: By default, you can set a "Hotkey" using the text of the control ('&' character before the letter to be defined as hotkey). For more details, see "& character"
Assigning a keyboard shortcut to a control in a window
To assign a keyboard shortcut to a control in a window:
- Open the control description window (select "Description" in the context menu).
- Go to the the "UI" tab and click the button next to "Keyboard shortcut".
- Select the keys that constitute the desired hotkey.
The "Detection" button is used to detect the key (or the combination of keys) used on the keyboard.
Remark: In Android, for security reasons, the "Home" and "End of call" keys cannot be used as shortcuts.
