ShortCutKey - Property

Posted on by 33
I have read these articles:
I want the user be able to use the shortcutkey.
However i dont want the action to be visible to the user.
If i set the Visible property to false i can no longer use the shortcut. 
If i set the visible to true and the editable to false, i can also no longer use the shortcutkeypropery.
                Caption = 'test';
                Promoted = true;
                Visible = true;
                Enabled = false;
                ShortcutKey = 'Ctrl+F6';
                ApplicationArea = All;
                trigger OnAction()
                    ShowField := true;
Is there anyone who has a solution?
Thanks in advance, 
Dear Community

    I personally don't think it makes any difference to display the action on the page. If the client minds this, then do all unused actions on the standard page have to be hidden?
    I think you can try to convince them. Although it may be a bit difficult.

    First of all, thank you for your thoughts. 
    After thinking about this technical problem, i have come to the conclusion that it is not possible
    to solve this problem via ShortCutKey property. 
    I must talk to the client and propose to solve this problem via a flag in the permission set. 
    Thanks to

    I also think Mohamed's approach is correct, you can only find a way to disable the code from running, you can't hide it.
    You can consider not promoting the action so that users can't find it so easily.
    Hope this helps.

    I think you can add if statement in your trigger method to prevent the execution of code :
    for e.g.
    trigger OnAction()
       if showField = tue then begin
       // Your Logic Here
    Best regrds,
