The KeyGestureConverter class only converts an instance KeyGesture to and from a String.

The KeyGestureConverter converts to and from a String using the "+" character as the delimiter between the modifier keys and the key. For example, the string Control+A would be converted into a KeyGesture with a Modifiers property equal to Control and Key property equal to A.


Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
