Using Custom Keyboard Shortcuts and Language Codes

Levels of Keyboard Shortcuts

Release allows you to create custom keyboard shortcuts of the following types:

Keyboard Shortcut Type Level of Specificity Description Properties File Format
Default Application-wide Built-in shortcuts available by default None
Application Shortcuts Most general (least specific) Will apply to all batch classes [SharedFolders]\shortcut-keys\
Language-specific Application Shortcuts Will apply to all batch classes where user’s browser is set for the specified language [SharedFolders]\shortcut-keys\ShortcutKeys-[lang-code].properties

See language codes below

Batch Class Shortcuts Will apply to a single batch class [SharedFolders]\[batch-class]\shortcut-keys\
Language-specific Batch Class Shortcuts Most specific Will apply to a single batch class, where the user’s browser is set for the specified language [SharedFolders]\[batch-class]\shortcut-keys\ShortcutKeys-[lang-code].properties

Be aware of the following guidelines when using customized shortcuts in the user interface:

More specific keyboard shortcuts will always override less specific shortcuts. For example, a keyboard shortcut that is defined for a batch class will override a keyboard shortcut that is defined for the application level.

A language-specific keyboard shortcut (French, for example) will always override the default shortcut, when the user’s browser is set to that language.

Supported Country Codes

Transact integrates support for the following country codes. You can use these codes to override the default settings in the properties file.

Language Code Description Notes
en English Default if no other language is specified.
es Spanish
fr French
de German
nl Dutch
it Italian

Keyboard Shortcut Properties File Format

Each line has four items separated by the pipe ( | ) symbol. The following line illustrates this syntax convention:



binding — These are predefined as in the sample cited below. Only those bindings are supported.

modifiers — For any combination of Ctrl + Alt + Shift, leave empty for no modifiers. You can also use Ctrl, Shft, or Control.

keycode — These are JavaScript native keycodes that you can get from the following resource:

Description — This is the text to be displayed in the Shortcuts dropdown menu on the Review and Validation screens.

The following line is an example:

reviewValidate.ZoomIn=shift+ctrl+alt|83|Shift + Ctrl + Alt + S

Note: If you omit or override a setting, then the default shortcut is used. You can “comment out” a line by starting that line with a # symbol.

The following lines illustrate a sample properties file for keyboard shortcuts:

# ctrl+shift+alt|keycode|human readable keys
reviewValidate.RotateClockwise=ctrl|105|APP Ctrl + NUM 9
reviewValidate.RotateAnticlockwise=ctrl|103|Ctrl + NUM 7
reviewValidate.ZoomIn=ctrl|104|Ctrl + NUM 8
