UI request: add a function key toolbar (f1-f12)
Status in QEMU:
I run old DOS programs under FreeDOS using QEMU.
It's common when running/testing DOS applications to use the function
keys. Some of these (such as F10) are intercepted by the window
system. For example, some DOS program installers use F10 to install
the software, but F10 is intecepted by the window system.
The standard solution is to jump to the QEMU console and use sendkey
to send a specific function key to the QEMU guest (often needed for
'sendkey f10'). But this does not seem to be very user friendly for
new users. Nor is it very fast if you need to this often.
I propose QEMU add a toolbar with the function keys.
I've attached a mockup of one possible design, with a simple toolbar
for F1-F12. A possible modification would be to add "modifier" buttons
for Ctrl and Shift and Alt to make it easier for users to enter
combinations like Ctrl-F12 or Alt-F10 or Shift-F1.
