AccessText.Text Property

Definition

Gets or sets the text that is displayed by the AccessText element.

public:
 property System::String ^ Text { System::String ^ get(); void set(System::String ^ value); };
public string Text { get; set; }
member this.Text : string with get, set
Public Property Text As String

Property Value

The text without the first underscore character. The default is an empty string.

Examples

The following example creates an access key that customizes the first letter of the access key, which contains the mnemonic, and then sets the rest of the text by using the Text property.

<DockPanel>
<AccessText Background="Red" Foreground="LightBlue" FontFamily="Arial Narrow" FontSize="16" FontStyle="Italic" 
     FontWeight="Bold">_E</AccessText><AccessText Text="dit"/>
</DockPanel>

Remarks

An access key is not created if you use the Text property to supply text for an AccessText element. This property is used internally to determine the text that is displayed by the access key. You can use this property to set additional text that does not contain the mnemonic (underlined character) or to retrieve the access key text.
