Why don't my mnemonic keys work?
Posted on 1997-08-21
I have created an application which has modeless dialog boxes. I have defined (in the resource editor) mnemonic keys for the various controls -- for example, &Close for a pushbutton that says "Close". Right now, when the dialog box has the focus (blue title bar instead of gray), pressing the mnemonic keys has absolutely no effect. Hitting tab to move among the controls also has no effect. My application also has a mainframe menu, with mnemonic keys defined (&File so that Alt-F brings up the File menu). These work.
Is there a reason for this seeming inconsistency?
