Examples

The following code example creates a menu item, sets the caption, assigns a shortcut key, makes the menu item visible, and shows the shortcut key display for the menu item. The example requires that a MenuItem has been created that is named menuItem1.

public:
   void SetupMyMenuItem()
   {
      // Set the caption for the menu item.
      menuItem1->Text = "&New";
      // Assign a shortcut key.
      menuItem1->Shortcut = Shortcut::CtrlN;
      // Make the menu item visible.
      menuItem1->Visible = true;
      // Display the shortcut key combination.
      menuItem1->ShowShortcut = true;
   }
public void SetupMyMenuItem()
{
   // Set the caption for the menu item.
   menuItem1.Text = "&New";
   // Assign a shortcut key.
   menuItem1.Shortcut = Shortcut.CtrlN;
   // Make the menu item visible.
   menuItem1.Visible = true;
   // Display the shortcut key combination.
   menuItem1.ShowShortcut = true;
}
  
Public Sub SetupMyMenuItem()
    ' Set the caption for the menu item.
    menuItem1.Text = "&New"
    ' Assign a shortcut key.
    menuItem1.Shortcut = Shortcut.CtrlN
    ' Make the menu item visible.
    menuItem1.Visible = True
    ' Display the shortcut key combination.
    menuItem1.ShowShortcut = True
End Sub

Remarks

You can use this property to provide the option for users to hide shortcuts from menus to conserve menu space or to hide a shortcut key from being displayed.
