Control.ProcessMnemonic Method

Processes a mnemonic character.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

[<UIPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.InheritanceDemand, Window = UIPermissionWindow.AllWindows)>]
[<UIPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, Window = UIPermissionWindow.AllWindows)>]
abstract ProcessMnemonic : 
        charCode:char -> bool 
[<UIPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.InheritanceDemand, Window = UIPermissionWindow.AllWindows)>]
[<UIPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, Window = UIPermissionWindow.AllWindows)>]
override ProcessMnemonic : 
        charCode:char -> bool 

Parameters

charCode
Type: System.Char
The character to process.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the character was processed as a mnemonic by the control; otherwise, false.

This method is called to give a control the opportunity to process a mnemonic character. The method should determine whether the control is in a state to process mnemonics and if whether the given character represents a mnemonic. If so, the method should perform the action associated with the mnemonic and return true. If not, the method should return false. Implementations of this method often use the IsMnemonic method to determine whether the given character matches a mnemonic in the control's text.

For example:

if (CanSelect && IsMnemonic(charCode, MyControl.Text) {
      // Perform action associated with mnemonic.
       }

This default implementation of the ProcessMnemonic method simply returns false to indicate that the control has no mnemonic.

The following code example demonstrates an extension of the button class that overrides the ProcessMnemonic method to exhibit custom behavior. The example also demonstrates the use of the CanSelect and IsMnemonic properties. To run this example paste the following code after a form class, in the same file. Add a button of type MnemonicButton to the form.
