    How to make accessKey independent of keyboard language

    MAhmed user9314172
      I've Fusion ADF web Application using jdeveloper 11.1.1.6
      and I want to add accessKey to buttons to handle shortcuts.
      for example I've added accessKey="a" for add button and this works with no problem but when I change the keyboard  language from English to Arabic
      and press ALT a to use this accessKey , it doesn't work

      is there any way to use access key independent of keyboard language.

          For clarification, can I ask you this:
          - If "the keyboard language is English " and you press the key "a" (used in Alt-a) in a text editor, which character is shown?
          - If "the keyboard language is Arabic " and you press the same key "a" (used in Alt-a) in a text editor, which character is shown?

            Hi, Jan Vervecken
            thanks for reply
            - If "the keyboard language is English " and I pressed the key "a" (used in Alt-a) in a text editor, "a" character is shown.
            - If "the keyboard language is Arabic " and I pressed the same key "a" (used in Alt-a) in a text editor, "ش" character is shown.

              Given that the character resulting for the same key is different when you "change the keyboard language", it seems unlikely that there is "any way to use access key independent of keyboard language ", because what would it be that you (or the framework) depends on to make it work?
