OptionGroup.ShortcutMenuBar property (Access)

You can use the ShortcutMenuBar property to specify the shortcut menu that appears when you right-click the specified object. Read/write String.

Syntax

expression.ShortcutMenuBar

expression A variable that represents an OptionGroup object.

Remarks

The ShortcutMenuBar property applies only to controls on a form, and not to controls on a report.

You can also use the ShortcutMenuBar property to specify the menu bar macro that is used to display a shortcut menu for a datasheet, form, form control, or report. To display the built-in shortcut menu for a database, form, form control, or report by using a macro or Visual Basic, set the property to a zero-length string (" ").

When used with the Application object, the ShortcutMenuBar property enables you to display a custom shortcut menu as a global shortcut menu. However, if you've set the ShortcutMenuBar property for a form, form control, or report in the database, the custom shortcut menu of that object is displayed in place of the database's global shortcut menu.

You can display a different custom shortcut menu for a specific form, form control, or report by setting its ShortcutMenuBar property to a different shortcut menu. When the form, form control, or report has the focus, the custom shortcut menu for that object is displayed when the user clicks the right mouse button; otherwise, the global shortcut menu for the database is displayed.

Shortcut menus aren't available to any object if the AllowShortcutMenus property is set to False.

Example

The following example sets the Suppliers_Toolbar as the custom shortcut menu to display when the user clicks the right mouse button on the Suppliers form.

Forms("Suppliers").ShortcutMenuBar = "Suppliers_Toolbar"
