Detailed Description

Shortcuts manager is a class that contains a list of QActions and QShortcuts that have been registered and their shortcuts can be changed.

QgsShortcutsManager is not usually directly created, but rather accessed through QgsGui::shortcutsManager().

Since
QGIS 2.16

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

◆ QgsShortcutsManager()

QgsShortcutsManager::QgsShortcutsManager ( QObject *  parent = nullptr,
const QString &  settingsRoot = "/shortcuts/" 
)

Constructor for QgsShortcutsManager.

Parameters
parentparent object
settingsRootroot QgsSettings path for storing settings, e.g., "/myplugin/shortcuts". Leave as the default value to store settings alongside built in QGIS shortcuts, but care must be taken to not register actions which conflict with the built in QGIS actions.
