KeyTipAccessText for statusbar

Posted 1 month ago by Avatar rex hui

For accessibility reason, is there a way to add KeyTipAccess to buttons inside the Statusbar?

For example, the Actipro Ribbon Sample has several buttons (goto page, word count, etc)  in the statusbar area but none of them can be activated via keyboard keys. 

Information The latest build of this product (2018.1 build 0671) was released 1 month ago, which was before this thread was created.

Hi Rex,

Sorry, for the delay, I thought we had replied to this.  Not at the moment, no.  I tested this out in the latest Office apps, and I don't see that they provide key tip access to the status bar controls.  Have you seen that anywhere?  That being said, you could still provide keyboard shortcuts to those particular commands in the statusbar.

Thank you. You are right. I wonder why this is not against their accessibility requirements.
