#1,087 – Associating a Key Binding with Multiple Modifier Keys

You define a KeyBinding object to bind a key gesture (i.e. keypress) to a particular command.  You can do this in XAML by defining a <KeyBinding> element, associating a routed command with a key “gesture”.  The gesture indicates the key that you can press in order to execute the command.

Key gestures typically require associating a key with at least one of the modifier keys (Ctrl, Alt, Shift, or Windows key).  For example, Ctrl+O is specified as:

        <KeyBinding Command="ApplicationCommands.Open"

You can also combine modifier keys, using the “+” symbol.

        <KeyBinding Command="ApplicationCommands.Open"
