Function gtk4::functions::accelerator_parse[][src]

pub fn accelerator_parse(accelerator: &str) -> Option<(u32, ModifierType)>
Expand description

Parses a string representing an accelerator.

The format looks like “<Control>a” or “<Shift>``<Alt>F1”.

The parser is fairly liberal and allows lower or upper case, and also abbreviations such as “<Ctl>” and “<Ctrl>”. Key names are parsed using keyval_from_name(). For character keys the name is not the symbol, but the lowercase name, e.g. one would use “<Ctrl>minus” instead of “<Ctrl>-”.

If the parse fails, accelerator_key and accelerator_mods will be set to 0 (zero).
