Hi,

I want a CommandBarButton click to occur when I press, say ctrl+H or alt+H.
How do I do this?
I tried setting the KeyTip property of the button to "H" but that did not work.

Thanks!

Hello Jerves,

Thank you for your question.

You can achieve this by using our shortcut mechanism. The following code snippet demonstrates how this could be done:
this.commandBarButton1.Shortcuts.Add(new Telerik.WinControls.RadShortcut(Keys.Control, Keys.H));

This will fire the Click event of commandBarButton1 when Ctrl+H is pressed.

I hope you find this helpful. Should you have any additional questions, do not hesitate to ask.

Kind regards,

Hello Ricric,

You can put the code in your form's constructor or in the Load event handler. In general, you can put this code wherever you want. Once it has been executed, the shortcut will become functional.

Hope this helps.
