InputGestureText doesn't work

InputGestureText doesn't work!
No documentation, demo or any other information available, please help!

                    Command="{Binding OpenDocumentCommand}"
                    Header="{x:Static res:Strings.MenuFileOpenDocument}"
                    InputGestureText="Ctrl+O" />

Note that I did try to set some input binding on the UserControl as shown below but it still doesn't work.

        <KeyBinding Command="{Binding OpenDocumentCommand}" Gesture="Ctrl+O" />

Any idea, hint, solution, beer accepted :-)

Hi Jean-Marc,

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support.

We have analyzed the reported query - "GestureText doesn't work in the MenuAdv control". Based on your requirement we will prepare a sample and then check the GestureText property by debugging our source project. So we will update the further details on 29th November, 2019.

We appreciate your patience until then.

Thirupathi B.

Hi Jean-Marc, 
We have prepared a simple sample based on your requirement – “How to achieve the GestureText support in MenuAdv control”. This requirement can be achieved by making changes to the application level below the code. Please refer the following code sample. 
# MainWindow.xaml 
        <KeyBinding Command="{Binding Command}" Key ="{Binding Command.Gesture.Key}" Modifiers="{Binding Command.Gesture.Modifiers}"></KeyBinding> 
        <syncfusion:MenuAdv x:Name="menu" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Height="72" VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="206"> 
           <syncfusion:MenuItemAdv Header="_Edit" > 
                <syncfusion:MenuItemAdv InputGestureText="{Binding Command.GestureText}" Header="{Binding Command.Text}"/> 
# MainWindow.xaml.cs 
    public partial class MainWindow : Window 
        public ICommand Command { get; set; } 
        public MainWindow() 
            this.DataContext = this; 
            Command = new CommandWithHotkey("Cut", Key.X, ModifierKeys.Control); 
    public class CommandWithHotkey : ICommand 
        public CommandWithHotkey(string text, Key key, ModifierKeys modifier) 
            Text = text; 
            Gesture = new KeyGesture(key, modifier); 
        public bool CanExecute(object parameter) 
            return true; 
        public void Execute(object parameter) 
            MessageBox.Show("MenuItem Clicked : " + Text); 
        public KeyGesture Gesture { get; set; } 
        public string GestureText 
            get { return Gesture.GetDisplayStringForCulture(CultureInfo.CurrentUICulture); } 
        public string Text { get; set; } 
        public event EventHandler CanExecuteChanged;

We have faced the issue while using mnemonics ‘Unable to access the menu items through the Mnemonics key” and we have logged an issue report for the same. We will provide the patch file for the reported issue on 13th December, 2019. The fix will be available in our next main release Volume 4 release which is scheduled to be rolled out at mid-December, 2019.
