Summary0000101: Static Global Hotkeys
DescriptionIn audio players like AIMP and winamp is possible to define "global hotkeys" for controling player. That feature will be great in RadioSure. When player is minimized, for example, we could start recording easy with global hotkey combination (ctrl+alt+R), or stop recording without need to maximize player. Customizing that hotkeys will be nice too.

Recommended controls for global hotkeys:
- start play
- stop play
- start recording
- stop recording
- mute on/off
- volume up
- volume down
- maximize player
- minimize player
- play next station in list (forward)
- play prev. station in list (back)
- add current station in favorite
- exit program

Just try to imagine how good will be controling RadioSure by global hotkeys while working on some other program (programing, chating, writing mail...) without need to:
1. take mouse
2. pointing on tray icon
3. click with mouse in tray and get radio in first plan
4. then clicking to control
5. and after that again minimize.
Yes one g.hotkey instad 5 actions. Amazing :)

Importand thing about this is to leave hotkeys customizing fields empty, to avoid conflict with other apps. User will define his own key combinations, cause (Alt+Ctrl+R) is used, for example in some programing tools, for refactor or rename, but (ctrl + any num key) is free. Fore example I use for AIMP player:

(ctrl + Num 0) for toggle maximize/minimize,
(ctrl + Num /) for close player,
(ctrl + Num 1) volume down,
(ctrl + Num 3) volume up,
(ctrl + Num 2) Mute,
(ctrl + Num 5) toggle Play/Pause,
(ctrl + Num 4) Previous,
(ctrl + Num 6) Next,
(ctrl + Num Del) Delete current playing song (ye I hate some songs in my collection :P). This hotkey could be 'Record' for RadioSure, or maybe (ctrl + Num *).

There is no conflict with visual studio and other windows apps.
I could set all the same for RadioSure, cause both players will not run in same time. You could set it too :P

Fixed in 851.
Current static keys:
(Ctrl + Alt + "H") for toggle hide/show,
(Ctrl + Alt + Num Plus) volume down,
(Ctrl + Alt + Num Minus) volume up,
(Ctrl + Alt + "M") Mute,
(Ctrl + Alt + "P") toggle Play/Stop,
(Ctrl + Alt + "S") Stop,
(ctrl + Alt + "B") Back,
(ctrl + Alt + "N") Next,
(ctrl + Alt + "R") start/stop Recording.

Sorry, but not good like that :) That hotkeys are in conflict with many programs (especially with visual studio 2008). For example CTRL+ALT+S are Save All in many programs, in Visual Studio that hotkey is "Show server explorer", etc.

Please read carefully my first note on this post. As I wrote, ctrl+ NUM keys are not in conflict (except "ctrl + NUM plus" and "ctrl + NUM minus" which are zoom in Graphic programs like Photoshop). All other keys "CTRL + NUM something" are free.

If you really wish that hotkey choice, then please make option to disable global hotkeys (cause someone use visual studio and listen radio in same time ;)), or make possibility to change hotkey combinations. Both of that options are welcome. Most importand is customizing hotkeys by users wishes. It can be in some next builds...

P.S. start/stop recording is one importand which missing :)

Okay, will change to Alt + Shift for now. Later it will be possible to adjust in options.

Yeah of course "R" is for recording. Just forgot to mention.
