Accelerator Key Constants
Constants representing common accelerator key names.
The Development Center provides a number of predefined constants. Some of these constants correspond to commonly used accelerator keys. Others are used in various Zim printing commands and functions. These constants are defined in the $DeployServices directory so this directory must be accessed before they can be used.
The constants that correspond to accelerator keys are
|ShiftF1 to ShiftF12||that correspond to the key sequences Shift+F1 to Shift+F12.|
|CtrlF1 to CtrF12||that correspond to the key sequences Ctrl+F1 to Ctrl+F12.|
|AltF1 to AltF12||that correspond to the key sequences Alt+F1 to Alt+F12.|
|Alt0 to Alt9||that correspond to the key sequences Alt+0 to Alt+9.|
|AltA to AltZ||that correspond to the key sequences Alt+A to Alt+Z.|
|AltMinus and AltEqual||that correspond to Alt+â€“ (hold down Alt and press the Minus key) and Alt++ (hold down Alt and press the Plus key).|
|CtrlTab and CtrlBackTab||that correspond to Ctrl+Tab (hold down Ctrl and press the Tab key) and Ctrl+BackTab.|
Note: If you forget to ACCESS $DeployServices before executing or compiling a command such as WINDOW SET EXIT AltF1 ShiftF12, then Zim interprets “AltF1” and “ShiftF12” as strings and makes each character (i.e. “A”, ” l”, “t”, etc.) an accelerator key.
