Property Value

Type: System.String

The shortcut key or access key for the accessible object, or null if there is no shortcut key associated with the object.

Exception Condition
COMException

The shortcut for the control cannot be retrieved.

An access key, also known as a mnemonic, is an underlined character in the text of a menu, menu item, label of a button, or some other control. For example, a user can display a menu by pressing the ALT key while also pressing the indicated underlined key, such as ALT+F, to open the File menu. To use the access key of a menu item, the menu containing the item must be active. Controls such as toolbar buttons and menu items often have an associated shortcut key. A menu item can have both an access key and a shortcut key associated with it. If the value of the KeyboardShortcut property is a single character, you can assume it is an access key.

Notes to Inheritors:

All objects that have a shortcut key or access key should support this property.
