    Key is the abstract base class for all objects representing keys on the keyboard.

    All Key objects have a formal string representation, called the 'name' of the key, available via the toString() method.

    All Key objects, via the format() method, provide a version of their formal string representation translated by platform and locale, suitable for display to a user.

    Key objects are immutable. Clients are not permitted to extend this class.

    Since:
    3.0
    Restriction:
    This class is not intended to be subclassed by clients.
