Shortcut keys

The following shirtcut keys can be used in AppGini apps as of AppGini 5.90.

Note: Unless otherwise specified (1) , pressing the shortcut keys below focuses (highlights) the related link/button (rather than performing the action itself -- this is intended to prevent doing any unintended action by mistake if pressing the wrong shortcut key combination). After a link is focused, you could press ENTER to actually activate the link, TAB to navigate to the next link, or SHIFT + TAB to navigate to the previous link.

(1) Wherever the shortcut listings below mention \"instant action\" , this is an exception to the above rule, meaning that pressing this particular shortcut keys combination would instantly apply the related action.
