RibbonTab.KeyTip Property

Gets or sets the keyboard shortcut for the tab.

Namespace:  Microsoft.Office.Tools.Ribbon
Assembly:  Microsoft.Office.Tools.Common (in Microsoft.Office.Tools.Common.dll)

string KeyTip { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
The current keyboard shortcut for the tab.

This property can be changed at design time or at run time before the keyboard shortcuts are shown for the first time.

A KeyTip must have from 1 to 3 uppercase characters, and must not contain spaces, tabs, or newline characters.

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.
