Hot Key Support

Postby shert » Wed Dec 10, 2008 5:20 pm

Is there a way within the EBMM tool to incorporate the 'hot key' feature? Didn't know if there was a way to add an indicator to a menu item within the EBMM interface. We can manually update the HTML to insert the 'ACCESSKEY' and underline the target letter, but would like to do this within the tool while generating the toolbar initially.

You seem to know more about ACCESSKEY. Do you know whether this is in the W3C HTML standard and is it supported by all modern browsers?

Good points. Yes, ACCESSKEY is supported by the key browsers (at a minimum-IE, FF, Opera, Mac) -- how it is invoked from one browser to the next may vary but the functionality is supported. And yes, it is in the W3C standard for several tags including anchor<a> which would work for the EBMM menus. But I do see comments that it was removed for XHTML.
I'm not sure is there another way to implement 'hot keys'? This definitely would be a nice feature to have for our menus.
