string KeyTip { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String

A string that represents the keyboard access key of the menu.

A KeyTip must have from 1 to 3 characters, and must not contain spaces, tabs, or newline characters. All characters should be upper case.

KeyTips are sometimes known as access keys or accelerators and are used as shortcut key combinations that activate controls. KeyTips appear on the Ribbon when you press the ALT key. If your KeyTip conflicts with KeyTips for built-in controls or from other add-ins, Microsoft Office might assign non-conflicting KeyTip values automatically.
