Key listeners for buttons


Add a listener for key presses which triggers the button action. So if I add a listener on a button for the 'N' key, whenever it is pressed by the user in my Mendix application it will trigger whatever action is linked to that button. I believe this will add a huge improvement to the user experience of any Mendix application.

Possible use cases:

- Add a listener for esc key on close button

- Add a listener for 'N' key on 'new' button

- Use ctrl + S to save input

- Better support for expert users, allowing them to exclusively use the keyboard throughout your application

Hey Marius,

there's a widget in the appstore which does exactly that.

But it would be nice to have this incorporated in the Mendix platform as native functionality, as this widget has Community level support.
