One quick question.
In vc++ Window Forms Programming, how can I underline one letter in the text of button. If I have a button "NEW" and I want to underline "N" to indicate the shortcut..(ctrl + N). Does anyone know how to do this?

Thanks a lot

Thx for reply....
Bt, it didn't work like that. It works if I'm doing that at menustripts but not with buttons. Are you sure that works?

The &N should underline the N on a button.
Do you mean the underline isn't working or the event if you use keyboard.  If the event then use an 'accelerator' resource.
