How to show which keys have been pressed in ADT?

When doing demos in workshops it is beneficial when participants are able “see” which buttons the presenter has pressed when working with ADT.

For example when using the data preview for a table or a CDS view one will press the F8 button and this information is then nicely displayed so that the participants can easily read this information.

You can activate this as described in the Eclipse Online Help:

Help – Eclipse Platform

by simply selecting

Window –> Preferences

Here you search for the string Keys.

In the Keys setting screen you then have to use the two check boxes beneath

Show key binding when command is invoked.

      Yes, I have this feature "always on" (doing a demo or not), very useful!

      This is really cool and very helpful. Not only for the demos but also for the regular work, because this way I will learn even new shortcuts when clicking some buttons with mouse. Thanks for sharing Andre yet another benefit of working with ADT.

      Great for people who've not really got into ADT yet.
