Hi,
Drop a TActionList component on your form, double-click on it to open the actions editor, add few actions, assign ShortCuts (ShortCut property) to them and write appropriate OnExecute events.

Example:

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    ActionList1: TActionList;
    Action1: TAction;
    Edit1: TEdit;
    Memo1: TMemo;
    Button1: TButton;
    procedure Action1Execute(Sender: TObject);
    procedure Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.DFM}

procedure TForm1.Action1Execute(Sender: TObject);
begin
  Button1.SetFocus;
  Button1Click(Sender);
end;

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  ShowMessage('Button1 was pressed');
end;

That's what I'm talking about. In my example above there are some controls on a form and Button1 is one of them. It has its own OnClick event named Button1Click. Action1 from ActionList1 has ShortCut property set to Ctrl-V and OnExecute event which changes the focus to Button1 and fires its OnClick event. It doesn't matter where the focus currently is. It can be on a memo or edit control.

Shift-V is an alphanumeric key (capital v for example) and therefore can't be used as a shortkey.
