Hi Experts.
If there a way i can convert a TShortcut to a string value, and back again (StringToShortcut...)?

The TShortcut value comes from the Hotkey vcl. I want to be able to ex:
Showmessage(ShortcutToStr(Hotkey1.Hotkey));

//and set the hotkey1.hotkey from a string:
Hotkey1.Hotkey := StrToShortcut('Ctrl+Shift+B');

Please help.

Cheers Dennis
