Property Value


The character, associated with an element, that is used to activate that element.


An access key is a character in the text of a menu, menu item, or label of a control such as a button that activates the attached menu function. For example, the letter "O" is often used to invoke the Open file common dialog box from a File menu. UI Automation elements that have the access key property set always implement the InvokePattern class.
