I'm using Eclipse GEF and RCP framework in developing an application, i
want to map the Ctrl+X, Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V keyboard actions for cut, copy,
paste operations respectively. I have tried the following keysequence and
it works, but i want to map it with the above standard actions.

sharedKeyHandler.put(KeyStroke.getPressed(SWT.CTRL, 0),


sharedKeyHandler.put(KeyStroke.getPressed(SWT.F2, 0),


sharedKeyHandler.put(KeyStroke.getPressed(SWT.F3, 0),


Please let me know, how to do the same.

You don't need to define the key binding for copy, paste etc actions,
which are common for the workbench, since the keybinding is already
defined for them and is exactly the same. You need to define retarget copy
action for youe editor.
( platform.doc.isv/guide/wrkAdv_retarget.htm)

You can use Undo and Redo retarget actions from GEF's logic example editor
as an example.
Hope this helps.
