class Gtk::Shortcut


A Gtk::Shortcut describes a keyboard shortcut.

It contains a description of how to trigger the shortcut via a Gtk::ShortcutTrigger and a way to activate the shortcut on a widget via a Gtk::ShortcutAction.

The actual work is usually done via Gtk::ShortcutController, which decides if and when to activate a shortcut. Using that controller directly however is rarely necessary as various higher level convenience APIs exist on Gtk::Widgets that make it easier to use shortcuts in GTK.

Gtk::Shortcut does provide functionality to make it easy for users to work with shortcuts, either by providing informational strings for display purposes or by allowing shortcuts to be configured.
