I agree with what Paul says. But if you really want that, I believe this
is doable (even though one might consider it as a hack):
1) You can realize that your program reacts on key-pressed events: E.g.
register a KeyListener on the control that has the current focus of
interest (e.g. the viewer control) and on keyReleased evaluate your
KeyEvent (you may need to do an internet search how to realize that).
If your handler is rather global instead of local, you need a global
event listener, e.g. by adding a filter to the shell display
(getDisplay().addFilter(SWT.UP, listener)), which is really a hammer
that you should care of!
2) If you found that the key-combination of interest has occurred you
programmatically invoke a command, e.g.
IHandlerService handlerService = (IHandlerService)
This should have the wanted effect.
