Different platforms use different key-kombinations for clipboard
actions. Is there any way to use these in SWT ?
I would consider it an ugly hack to code a switch statement using a
different listener for each platform.


Exmaple: copy
Windows: STRG+C
Mac: COMMAND+C

note:
COMMAND!=STRG
macos has a STRG-key, too

Investigate the SWT.MOD1 etc. constants. This will help with
SWT.COMMAND+'C' vs SWT.CTRL+'C'.

Thanks for the pointer.
Where can I find the mapping of SWT.MODx for a platform in the eclipse
source ?

They are platform dependent and initialized in the class
org.eclipse.swt.SWT. How about using Eclipse to browse references to
SWT.MOD1?
