Creating accelerator keys for your menu items
You can designate one character of a menu or menu item as an accelerator key. For example, if you create a menu item called "Print Report," you can designate the letter R, and the R is underlined when the user presses the Alt key.
When creating accelerator keys, do not choose a letter that other menus on the menu bar use. Do not duplicate the choices for menu items in your menu.
To designate a character as an accelerator key
- Select the menu or menu item in the Edit Menu Bar dialog box.
- In the Properties tab, click the Label property, and enter an ampersand (&) before the character.
