The keys property defines labels to be given to ON KEY or COMMAND KEY action handlers when a field is made current.

By defining a label for a key, the runtime system will show a default button for the key action.


This feature is supported for backward compatibility. Consider using action attributes to define accelerator keys and decorate actions.

This property exists for formfields which can get the keyboard focus. It appears in the FormField property group.

Click the ellipse to add, delete or edit keys. The Edit Keys property editor opens.
