Menu Shortcut Letter

Postby pauldshep » Wed Mar 18, 2009 9:13 am

I would like to attach a shortcut Letter to some of my menu items (not an accelerator). This is where the letter is underlined in the menu text and when you type Alt-Letter the menu either drops down or executes. Does anyone know how to do this? I seem to remember in a Borland product you preceeded the letter in the menu text with a "&" and implemented a key event handler.
