Adding Hotkeys

  • Hey!
    So I am building my browser and I was wondering if there was a way that I could add hotkeys. For example option/alt would highlight the searchbar, or command-f makes the window fullscreen.
    I have the fullscreen code right here:
    @void MainWindow::on_actionFullscreen_triggered()
    Is there a way to add hotkey functionality to this code? Thanks!

  • Yes, you can use QAction or QShortcut.

  • As 1+1=2 says you can set shortcut to action.
    @actionFullscreen - >setShortcut(QKeySequence(Qt::CTRL + Qt::Key_F));@

  • Ok, thank you both!
    Haha its a lot simpler then I thought it would be!
    probably a n00b question, but thanks all the same!

  • Oh yeah, what are the arrow keys and what is Key_Forward?
