Hello,

Is there a way to change the KeyTipAccessText for the Application Menu?

It seems to be hardcoded to F with no option to set it to something else.

Hi Greg,

Yes, please see the "Ribbon / Controls / Built-In Miscellaneous Controls / Backstage/ApplicationMenu" topic in the documentation that comes with the product.  Both Backstage and ApplicationMenu have KeytipAccessText properties that you can use to change "F" to something else.

Hello,

The Backstage has the property, but the ApplicationMenu doesn't seem to have it, that's why I was confused.

In other words, this doesn't work:

myRibbonControl.ApplicationMenu.KeytipAccessText

Hello,

The Ribbon.ApplicationMenu property returns a FrameworkElement.  It can be cast to an ApplicationMenu or Backstage based on what you use.  Both of those types have the KeyTipAccessText property.

I understand, thank you for the information.

The latest build of this product (v2019.1 build 0684) was released 15 days ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
