    You can change the keyboard keys that are used to trigger built-in actions to other keys. Actions include navigation, selection, cut, copy, paste, clear, undo, and redo.

    There is a complete list of actions in the SpreadActions class.

    Using Code

    The following example maps keys to actions.

    Copy Code
    public MainWindow()
                Dictionary<GrapeCity.Windows.SpreadSheet.UI.KeyStroke, GrapeCity.Windows.SpreadSheet.UI.SpreadAction> keyMap = gcSpreadSheet1.View.KeyMap;
