CoreDispatcher.AcceleratorKeyActivated event

Applies to Windows and Windows Phone

Fired when an accelerator key is activated (pressed or held down).

Syntax

Public Event AcceleratorKeyActivated As TypedEventHandler(Of CoreDispatcher, AcceleratorKeyEventArgs)

Event information

Delegate TypedEventHandler<CoreDispatcher, AcceleratorKeyEventArgs>

Remarks

Windows 8 behavior

XAML processes CTRL+TAB or CTRL+SHIFT+TAB key presses for tab navigation, and apps do not get a chance to handle them from the AcceleratorKeyActivated event. Starting in Windows 8.1, we will allow the tab navigation processing with CTRL+TAB or ALT+TAB or SHIFT+TAB.

If you handled the AcceleratorKeyActivated event in Windows 8 to do special processing, the event will get fired for Tab keys when invoked with CTRL, ALT, or SHIFT modifiers in Windows 8.1. Verify tab navigation with CTRL+TAB or ALT+TAB or SHIFT+TAB keys.
