c# MenuItem.Shortc ut


I'm generating a MainMenu in c# from a dataset, and one of the fields
is the shortcut. How can I add something like this:

if (dr["SHORTCUT"].ToString() != string.Empty)
m_menuitem.Shor tcut = dr["SHORTCUT"].ToString();

I'm sure that the above code doesn't work, but I'm a junior C#
developer so I need some help here...

Ideally, the column SHORTCUT should contain for example CtrlO or F4,
but I could live with for example 24, a constant referencing to an
array with shortcut enumerations, to translate for example to

What I would like to avoid is a massive Switch statement, where I have
to test for every possible value.

Thank you for your suggestions ,

Hi, the application I am writing has a MainMenu and a DataGrid (UltraGrid). Now I have to edit the text of each cell in this grid. So far so good. All works fine in editmode but if I press a key which is also a shortcut it doesn´t work and the menuitem-clickevent will be performed.
