Object hierarchy for Shortcut

public class Shortcut : Object

GtkShortcut is the low level object used for managing keyboard shortcuts.

It contains a description of how to trigger the shortcut via a ShortcutTrigger and a way to activate the shortcut on a widget via ShortcutAction.

The actual work is usually done via ShortcutController, which decides if and when to activate a shortcut. Using that controller directly however is rarely necessary as various higher level convenience APIs exist on Widgets that make it easier to use shortcuts in GTK.

Shortcut does provide functionality to make it easy for users to work with shortcuts, either by providing informational strings for display purposes or by allowing shortcuts to be configured.
