Re: [platform-swt-dev] How to hook the "Ctrl+Win" key

i have logged 55236 against SWT requesting generic support for a fifth
modifier key.

             "Janyckee Joz"

             Please respond to                                     Subject

                                       the "Ctrl+Win" key                  

The matter is:

Is it the only way that I have to review those bundles of SWT source codes
to map the Win key?
