BUG: Key Access Tips mispositioned

Ribbon for WPF Forum

Posted 14 years ago by SledgeHammer01
Version: 9.2.0515
Platform: .NET 4.0
Environment: Windows XP (32-bit)
I have a tab defined as follows:

<ribbon:Tab Label="View" KeyTipAccessText="V">
<ribbon:Group Label="Show / Hide">
<StackPanel Orientation="Vertical">
<ribbon:CheckBox Label="File View" Command="local:ApplicationCommands.ToggleFileView" KeyTipAccessText="F"/>
<ribbon:CheckBox Label="Thumbnails" Command="local:ApplicationCommands.ToggleThumbnails" KeyTipAccessText="T"/>
<ribbon:Group Label="Zoom">

Pretty simple... 2 checkboxes vertically stacked. The key access tips for "File View" and "Thumbnails" are positioned incorrectly over the middle of the text for both items. For "File View" the key tip is placed over the "e V" and for Thumbnails the key tip is placed over the "um".

The key tips should be placed slightly offset over the checkbox so the user can still read the text.

Sorry for all the bugs :)... I worked on a C++ / MFC gui library for 16 yrs, so I know how tedious these things can be.

Please change your normal WPF StackPanel to our ribbon one and it will work right:
<ribbon:StackPanel ItemVariantBehavior="AlwaysMedium">
 ... checkbox controls
Our ribbon:StackPanel positions the key tips for its child controls according to ribbon guidelines.

Thanks, that fixed it.
The latest build of this product (v24.1.2) was released 2 months ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
