#14974 closed defect (fixed)

right alt + key is unnecessarily intercepted

This is for webview on Windows

On some keyboard layouts you use right_alt+key to enter national characters. For example, right_alt+o gives "ó" in Polish-programmers layout.
Windows maps right alt to alt+ctrl in this keyboard layout.

Look at DocHostUIHandler::TranslateAccelerator : it blocks ctrl+o, which means that right alt+o will also be blocked.

I think the test in the abovementioned function should say:

if((GetKeyState(VK_CONTROL) & 0x8000 ) && !((GetKeyState(VK_MENU) & 0x8000 )){

(In [73381]) When handling accelerators in wxWebView make sure that we do not block right-alt which can be mapped to alt + ctrl.

Fixes #14974.
