Hi all.
I want my application to perform a certain action when a certain key is pressed, no matter if the application is currently focused or not. The actual thing I want to do is to assign a shortcut key for certain forms in my application, so it is very possible that no form of the application is focused (or visible, for that manner) when the shortcut key is pressed. I would like to be able to define the key and its modifiers.
The way I see it, is that there should be a way to assign a delegate to a key using some kind of a "GrabKey" method, perhaps part of gdk, that receives the key, the modifiers, the lock-level (global or application-only) and the delegate. However, I did not find any method like that.
