[minor bug] - keyboard shortcuts (hotkeys) interpretation

Post by antoine » Sat Nov 20, 2004 3:58 pm

In the keyboard shortcut settings, it is possible to assign actions to specific shortcuts : most of the keyboard keys are "recognized". For example, scroll lock key is well recognized : it works well and is properly indicated in the form cell in the options dialog (DEFIL on a french WinXP) ; yet, some other keys do work too (Pause/Attn) but their name is not indicated in the form cell.

Actually this isn't a bug really. It is simply undocumented.

Here are the keys that I'm aware of that can't be used.

PAUSE/BREAK
PRINT SCREEN / SYS RQ
ESC
SHIFT
TAB
DELETE
ENTER
SPACE

Here are keys that can only be used in combination with another key

ALT (Alternate) (ie [ALT]+[S])
CTRL (Control) (ie [CTRL]+[S])

The BACKSPACE key will return the value to NONE

As far as I know, the PAUSE/BREAK key works well when defined as a hotkey in PopTray. Its 'name' simply isn't indicated in the form cell of the options dialog.
