MenuItem.ShowShortcut Property

Gets or sets a value indicating whether the shortcut key that is associated with the menu item is displayed next to the menu item caption.

Namespace: System.Windows.Forms
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in system.windows.forms.dll)

[LocalizableAttribute(true)] 
public bool ShowShortcut { get; set; }
/** @property */
public boolean get_ShowShortcut ()

/** @property */
public void set_ShowShortcut (boolean value)

public function get ShowShortcut () : boolean

public function set ShowShortcut (value : boolean)

Property Value

true if the shortcut key combination is displayed next to the menu item caption; false if the shortcut key combination is not to be displayed. The default is true.

You can use this property to provide the option for users to hide shortcuts from menus to conserve menu space or to hide a shortcut key from being displayed.

The following code example creates a menu item, sets the caption, assigns a shortcut key, makes the menu item visible, and shows the shortcut key display for the menu item. The example requires that a MenuItem has been created that is named menuItem1.

public void SetupMyMenuItem()
{
   // Set the caption for the menu item.
   menuItem1.Text = "&New";
   // Assign a shortcut key.
   menuItem1.Shortcut = Shortcut.CtrlN;
   // Make the menu item visible.
   menuItem1.Visible = true;
   // Display the shortcut key combination.
   menuItem1.ShowShortcut = true;
}
  

public void SetupMyMenuItem()
{
    // Set the caption for the menu item.
    menuItem1.set_Text("&New");

    // Assign a shortcut key.
    menuItem1.set_Shortcut(Shortcut.CtrlN);

    // Make the menu item visible.
    menuItem1.set_Visible(true);

    // Display the shortcut key combination.
    menuItem1.set_ShowShortcut(true);
} //SetupMyMenuItem
