Description Trey Spiva 2008-09-12 15:21:54 UTC
The UML team has created a WidgetAction that can be used to move a node around a scene via keystrokes.  The nice thing about this action is that it uses the 
same provider and strategy as the MoveAction.  Therefore the behavior between the mouse move and the keyboard movement is very similar.  In fact when 
you use the AlignWIthMoveStrategy and Provider you will get the alignment lines when moving the node around the screen.  Well at least when you use 
continuous moving.  Continuous moving occurs when you hold down the Ctrl-<Arrow> keys down.

This action is needed to support A11Y issues.
