Riena Key Bindings

This document provides an introduction to key binding definition in Eclipse, lists the default Riena key bindings, explains how to best extend or replace them and provides migration instructions from Riena 1.1.

Intro to Key Bindings

Key bindings are defined using the org.eclipse.ui.bindings Extension Point (details). A key binding assigns a key sequence (F10) to a command (what to do) in a given scheme and context:

 <extension
        point="org.eclipse.ui.bindings">
     <scheme
           id="my.key.bindings"
           name="My Key Bindings"
           parentId="org.eclipse.riena.ui.defaultBindings">
     </scheme>
     <key
           commandId="org.eclipse.riena.example.client.exitCommand"
           contextId="org.eclipse.ui.contexts.window"
           schemeId="my.key.bindings"
           sequence="F10">
     </key>
 </extension>

Default Riena Key Bindings

Starting with Riena 1.2 a Riena application has the following standard key bindings (unless changed by the developer):

  • Next SubApplication - Ctrl+PgDn
  • Previous SubApplication - Ctrl+PgUp
  • Focus on Navigation Tree - F6
  • Focus on Workarea - F7
  • Focus on Window Menu - F10 (windows only)
  • Focus on Window Toolbar - F10; Tab (windows only)
  • Close Module - Ctrl+W
  • Close Module Group - Ctrl+Shift+W
  • Next Module/ModuleGroup - Ctrl+Down
  • Prev Module/ModuleGroup - Ctrl+Up
  • Next/Previous navigation element: Arrow Down / Arrow Up. This will move to the next available SubModule / Module or Module Group.
  • Quit Application - Alt+F4 (windows only)

These key bindings are assigned to the scheme org.eclipse.riena.ui.defaultBindings, which is the default active scheme for Riena apps. The are also assigned to the context org.eclipse.ui.contexts.window, which means they are only active when the window has the focus, not in dialogs.
