    Default Create a shortcut

    I've got a problem with a shortcut. In my program there's a list of books, and when I select a book there's a " Remove this book"-button. I need a shortcut to this removal-button. At first I solved it with Mnemonic, but thats no good. I dont want to press "alt+delete" to remove the selected book, I only want to press the "delete" button on the keyboard. Anyone knows how to create these type of shortcuts?

    I dont even get an error message. Been workin with accelerators now, but cant find out how to get it to work with no "ctrl+delete", just "delete". I think its something with the focus. Mabye I shouldnt try to bind my programmed button with the delete cmd, just get the selection in my list to get focus and then.. do something that deletes the item!?

    It's been awhile, but I remeber focus traversal for buttons. I had a giant switch nearly wrote once trying to write a keyboard handler - I remember it can be done, runs something along the lines of if event.typeof == keyEvent ( or whatever the sytax is ) then you can track along a switch working as many as you want.

    I forgot where it is,....
