Additional Comments
Expander triangle

Handle the cutKey message if you want to change the normal cut process, or prevent use of the Cut keyboard equivalent without changing the menu.

Comments:

The Revolution development environment traps the cutKey message. This means that the cutKey message is not received by a stack if it's running in the development environment, To test a cutKey handler, choose Development menuSuspend Development Tools.

cutKeymessage is sent when the user presses Command-X (on Mac OS systems), Control-X (on Windows systems), Shift-Delete (on Unix systems), or the keyboard Cut key.

The message is sent to the active (focused) control, or to the current card if no control is focused.
