WPF: What is F10 doing to my Key Trapping? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I use the F-Keys for pressing navigation buttons on a windows application that I'm developing.  I've noticed something strange with the F-10 key.

     First of all, it doesn't trap as Key.F10, it traps as Key.System. 

    Once pressed, the F10 key seems to halt any further key trapping in the application until you either hit F10 again, or use the mouse to change focus.  Does this key have some sort of other globl function that I am unaware of ?  And god forbid if you use the F10 key as a hotkey for navigation (which left me confused for some time)

    What's up with F10 trapping in WPF?  Or is it everywhere and I just never noticed?

  • F10 launches the window menu. It's the same in all Windows apps.

  • Is there any way that I can smother than functionality?  It causes some sort of focus loss and users that hit it by mistake are going to be confused when their hotkeys stop working.
