A shortcut can be removed with RemoveKeyboardShortcut().

Return value

None.

Remarks

The #PB_Shortcut_Command constant is only useful on Mac OSX and allow to use the 'Apple' key (left or right) to define shortcuts. This constant is also supported on others OS (to ease portability), but will act like #PB_Shortcut_Control. The shortcuts Apple+Q and Apple+P, are predefined on Mac OSX for the #PB_Menu_Quit and #PB_Menu_Preferences menu entries in the application menu and cannot be reassigned.

Example

  AddKeyboardShortcut(0, #PB_Shortcut_Control | #PB_ShortCut_F, 15) ; Will create a keyboard shortcut CTRL+F on the window 0
                                                                    ; which will fires a menu event '15'
