Accesskey option

P: n/a
hi All,

I'm using a web application. On my .aspx pages I want to
add shortcut keying option to textbox, dropdown, and
button. I know i can use AccessKey to add shortcuts but
I'm having problem with Button control. I want, when user
uses Alt + P. I want to give focus to a button control. I
have tried button1.Text = "&Print"; didn't work.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

Hi Manan,

You can add an AccessKey property on the Button control. The following
simple ASPX page works properly on my side. You can test the page on your
side:

<HTML>
<HEAD>
<title>WebForm1</title>
</HEAD>
<body MS_POSITIONING="GridLayout">
<form id="Form1" method="post" runat="server">
<INPUT style="Z-INDEX: 101; LEFT: 112px;
POSITION: absolute; TOP: 184px" type="button"
value="Type Alt+n" accesskey="N">
<asp:Button id="Button1" style="Z-INDEX: 102; LEFT:
112px; POSITION: absolute; TOP: 96px" runat="server"
Text="Type Alt+p" AccessKey="P"
</asp:Button>

</form>
</body>
</HTML>

Does this answer your question?
