Dear ProfUIS-Team,

what would be the right way to serialize keyboard shortcuts that have been defined or modified through CExtCustomizePageKeyboard not in the registry but in a file?

Kind regards,

The keyboard shortcuts are serialized as part of the customization subsystem state. The CExtCustomizeSite::CustomizeStateSerialize() method allows you to serialize the state of the customization subsystem into the CArchive stream which can be based on the CFile object opened on the file system’s file.
If you need to serialize keyboard accelerators only, the following code does this for all the registered documents/menus:

CArchive & ar = . . .
CExtCustomizeSize * pSite = . . .
INT i, nMenuInfoCount = pSite->MenuInfoGetCount();
            for(i = 0; i < nMenuInfoCount; i++ )
                        CExtCustomizeSize::CCmdMenuInfo * pCmdMenuInfo = pSite->MenuInfoGetAt( i );
                        ASSERT( pCmdMenuInfo != NULL );
                        pCmdMenuInfo->AccelTableSerialize( ar );
You can serialize the keyboard accelerators of one menu line only by invoking its CExtCustomizeSite::CCmdMenuInfo::AccelTableSerialize() method. You should invoke the CExtCustomizeSite::OnUpdateAccelGlobalInfo() method after loading keyboard accelerators.
