We would like to inform that ,  the RibbonControlAdv supports to user defined shortcuts. I have attached the sample as per your requirements , please find the sample from the attachments.


Please follow the steps to enable the keys.

1.Run the sample.

2.Press Alt key [It will populate theToolStripTabItems shortcut keys].

3.Press “O”.

It will populate the shortcut keys for toolstripButton.

4.Press “B” , toolstripButton1 will get selected.



Please let us know if you have any concerns.

Hi Chandran R. Thanks for your useful help.
I wanted to ask if I could have a compound of two keys instead of just one in the string value?
For example I wanted to have "CRTL+Z" as a short key for toolstripbutton1 and I tried something like this :

this.superAccelerator1.SetAccelerator(this.toolStripButton1, (Keys.ControlKey.ToString()+Keys.Z.ToString()));
which of course does not work. Is there any way to define that short key?

Hi again Chandran.R .
 I found another question. I am using Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.ToolStripEx
which includes some toolstripButtons. Pressing ALT key does not populate a short key for my ToolStripEx. So how can I enable short keys for these Buttons?
thanks for your help.

Hi Samapro,


Thanks for the update.




I wanted to have "CRTL+Z" as a short key for toolstripbutton1

I would like to inform , the SuperAccelator doesn’t support for the key combination and it supports only separate key, so you can’t use the key combination with SuperAccelator .


Pressing ALT key does not populate a short key for my ToolStripEx

The SuperAccelator specially created for RibbonControlAdv , So when you choose the TabItem’s SuperAccelator it will populate its own items. So you couldn’t use the SuperAccelator for ToolStripEx and its own items.



Please let us know for further assistance.
