Dialog box accelerator

Postby Newent » Mon Feb 04, 2008 2:30 pm

I've struggled my way through creating a dialog but there is still one thing I can't figure out. How do you add an accelerator to a label (i.e. underscore a letter) and then associate that label with another control, such as a text box. For example, if I press ALT+A the focus is taken to the text box adjacent to the label that has the A accelerator.

AFAIK there is no API to control the accelerators. They are somehow automagic when you take care of the tab order (label before listbox).

Just put a tilde character ( ~ ) at left of the character you want as accelerator.
