OHJ - Modifiers ignored in combination with F1 key

Hi there,

we use the addComponent(Component, String, boolean, boolen) method at CSHManager to register our context sensitive help.
We pass "true" for the thrird parameter - needF1Help.

Thus, the application pops up the help window on F1. However, it also shows the help on Control-F1, Shift-F1 or any other key combination that includes the F1 key. Looks like the modifiers get ignored here.

Any idea on how to strictly bind the help to the (modifierless) F1 key?

Thanks - Thomas

    There currently is no way to bind it to F1 only. However, we may be able to give you a workaround. Please e-mail our old support mailing list [email protected]

    We'll file a bug about this limitation and will fix it in a future release.
