In a project I'm working on I have a TToolButton with the Style property set to tbsDropDown. In the associated DropdownMenu I have set the ShortCut property for some of the Items but none of them work. Does anybody have any suggestions about what I may be doing wrong?

Yes, you need to use Actions to get it to work again. The long path would be to trap when the user presses down keys would be to trap the message and process it manually but that's purelly a waste of time IMHO.
That Actions actually are a good thing is only a bonus =)

The toolbutton couldn't response the keydown. It must be activation by the mouse click.

If you activate it and its popup menu disappear, the shortcuts will response the only one key described by the shortcuts, such as the A.

Notice it not response the combination keys, such as the Ctrl+A.
