Class MenuShortcut

java.lang.Object
  extended by java.awt.MenuShortcut
All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable

public class MenuShortcut
extends Object
implements Serializable

The MenuShortcutclass represents a keyboard accelerator for a MenuItem.

Menu shortcuts are created using virtual keycodes, not characters. For example, a menu shortcut for Ctrl-a (assuming that Control is the accelerator key) would be created with code like the following:

MenuShortcut ms = new MenuShortcut(KeyEvent.VK_A, false);

The accelerator key is platform-dependent and may be obtained via Toolkit.getMenuShortcutKeyMask().
