I want to use the keystroke accelerator option of
Therefore I do the following:
(define-application-command (com-my-command :menu "My Command"
:name "My Command"
When I now use CTRL-d in my application it beeps, but the body is not evaluated
If your application frame has any pane of type :INTERACTOR, CLIM's
default behavior is for the command reader *not* to use keystroke
accelerators. This is because keystroke accelerators can interact with
command lines in unpredictable ways. For example, suppose that you had
chosen #\D as the accelerator; then the user would not be able to type
any command line starting with the letter D.
What you need to do is provide a method for READ-FRAME-COMMAND for your
application frame as follows:
(defmethod read-frame-command ((frame <your-frame>) &key (stream *query-io*))
(read-command (frame-command-table frame) :stream stream :use-keystrokes t))
After doing that, everything should just work.
