Hey.. does anyone know a simple way to have a java script function be triggered by a keyboard shortcut in bitwig.. for example 'SHIFT+CONTROL+"D"

I was trying to figure out if there's some way to have an observer notify the script that a key combination has been pressed or something.. I may be missing something obvious, I couldn't find anything in the API documentation

No, that is currently not possible.

Ah I thought that would be the case.. would be a nice feature to be added to the API :)

I saw there is now some basic image rendering into a window available in the latest API version.. maybe we will be able to create simple GUIs for custom scripts that can manipulate note data, perform custom functions etc..

The intention of this is only for supporting graphics displays of controllers. The window is only intended for debugging. Proper GUI support will hopefully come in the future.

I think you are better served using the hotkeys editor inside bitwig, there a lot of actions you can map to...
