in Delphi1 menuitem1.caption:=Char(9)+"Caption" works, but this trick do not work in Delphi3?
How I do it?
Watch Question

Hi Edukas..
Try this :

  Open1.Caption:='                Open';
  Save1.Caption:='      Save into file';
  Exit1.Caption:='                   E&xit';

I thought it is supposed to be

menuitem1.caption:= chr(8)+ 'Caption'?

ie by adding backspace character to the menuitem text in menu resource statement

I will check out why it doesn't work, may be the windows API has changed but M$ did tell us?
