How can I send a key to a shell. In my special case I want to emulate that
the user pressed the esc-key, so that a Dialog will be closed.

Thanks, Rudolf

Remember to match every KeyDown with a KeyUp or things can become very weird
very quickly.

Rudolf,
see Snippet146 - post key event (i think that yo have to call
key down and key up, always)
If you want close Dialog only (and Dialog is jface Dialog) call
close.
