In my application I’m not able to navigate  in a menu using Alt+Key.


I can replicate the problem in "Bitmap Editor" sample program (BitmapEditor-md.exe):

I press Alt+V to open "View" menu,

then, to open "Toolbars" menu, I can’t use the "T" key in any way ("T" or "Alt+T").

In other programs, such as Windows Explorer with the same combination I open the Toolbar sub-menu.

Is there a solution for this?

Thank you for reporting this issue. To fix it, please do the following:

1) Add a new m_bHelperKeyTipsSupported Boolean flag property to the CExtToolControlBar class.

2) Set it to the false in the CExtToolControlBar::CExtToolControlBar() constructor.

3) Set it to true in the CExtRibbonPage::CExtRibbonPage() constructor. This step is not required for Prof-UIS freeware version.

4) Update the source code for the following method:

void CExtToolControlBar::KeyTipsDisplayedSet(
            bool bKeyTipsDisplayed // = true
            ASSERT_VALID( this );
            if( ! m_bHelperKeyTipsSupported )
                        m_bKeyTipsDisplayed = false;
                        m_bKeyTipsDisplayed = bKeyTipsDisplayed;
