23 Understanding Hot Keys

Hot keys are key stroke combinations, such as CTRL+ALT+V to save, that users can use instead of a mouse click to perform a Button Clicked event. In a JD Edwards EnterpriseOne application, most hot keys are reserved for system use.

This chapter contains the following topics:

There is a set of push button hot keys that are created by the system when you use any of certain predefined text strings on a push button.

See "Understanding Hot Keys" in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools Development Tools: Form Design Aid Guide.

23.2 System-Defined Toolbar Button Hot Keys

There is another set of push button hot keys that are created by the system in JD Edwards EnterpriseOne forms.

See " Button Hot Keys" in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools Foundation Guide.

23.4 Defining a Hot Key in Your Application

To define a hot key, insert an ampersand before the letter that you want to set as the hot key in the Title property for the button that will have the hot key. You can set the definition from either the properties dialog or from the properties panel. The letter you define is then underlined in your application. Hot keys are governed by these rules:

When you use the properties dialog to define the hot key and violate one of these rules, the system displays an error message and does not save the definition. However, when you use the properties panel to define the hot key, and violate a rule, no error message box is displayed. FDA ignores your definition (it is not saved).
