Let's say I add 2 labels,  L&abel1 and La&bel2, to a form.  I then I add two textboxes,textBox1 and textBox2, to a form.
How do I get textBox1 to get the focus when I hit Alt-b, and textBox2 to get the focus when I hit Alt-a?

write this in your KeyDown Event

 If (e.Alt And e.KeyValue = "a") TextBox1.Focus();
 If (e.Alt And e.KeyValue = "b") TextBox2.Focus();

I guess I need to repose the question.

While that may solve the problem, I still don't understand how, if you take first plop down a label on a new form, and then a textbox, and then change the labels caption to incorporate a shortcut, you get the label-textbox shortcut association "for free". I've looked through the code of a form that was made this way, and I can't see where the textbox and label are associated. How does C# accomplish this association, and can I do it in a similar fashion programatically.?

set label1.tabindex=1
set textbox1.tabindex=2
set label1.tabindex=3
set textbox1.tabindex=4
you can get it

the most important is not the number assigned to tabindex

the msdn said that when you Press alt-a(suggest in l&abel),the focus will set to the controls tabindex next to the label
