Forms Function Numbers

Editing the fmrweb.res to assign hotkeys to Forms Functions is not that easy. The syntax is described inside the file and there are no problems with the parameters JFN, JMN, URKS and URFD. But what IDs are used for FFN ?


# JFN : JMN : URKS : FFN : URFD (whitespace ignored)
#
# JFN = Java function number
# JMN = Java modifiers number
# URKS = User-readable key sequence (double-quoted)
# FFN = Forms function number
# URFD = User-readable function description (double-quoted)

Here it the complete list:

Could you brief the explanation for 'INVOKE MENU --> 28' what it does?

Thanks in advance for your response.
