A super-simple, modern interface to system hot keys in cocoa.
The API, whilst horribly undocumented, is fairly trivial. Create a DGGKeyCombo using a keycode and modifier mask, then register it with a handler block.
Boom! Your block will be invoked whenever the hotkey is pressed.
You are returned an opaque pointer from the registration, hang onto it, you will need it if you wish to unregister the hotkey.
All Cocoa, All the Time
You don't have to worry about Carbon types or constants. For the modifier mask, use the constants defined in
NSCommandKeyMask and friends.
You need to be linking the
Carbon framework in your project.
Tip of the Hat
This was all inspired by PTHotKey and the superb ShortcutRecorder.
