is there a mechanism in Eclipse to run Commands in an Editor based on the state of a key?

I'd like to do a quasimodal overlay for an Editor, i.e. as long as a key on the keyboard is pressed, additional information is shown, and when the key is released again, that information shall disappear.Think of the minimap from your favorite action-RPG or the score window in your FPS shooter to get the picture (don't worry, I want to implement something useful Smile ).

So far, I've only encountered the "usual" keyboard shortcuts, that do not do exactly what I would like to acheive.
