How to pass the menu shortcut keys from Floating Form to HostForm in WinForms DockingManager?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: DockingManager |
Published Date: April 30, 2011 |
Last Revised Date: December 4, 2019

Show the shortcut keys

The DockingManager.ForwardMenuShortCut property get or set a value indicating whether the HostForm is capable of listening the Keyboard Event, when the Docked control in Floating State. The Default value of ForwardMenuShortCut is true.

C#

// True, Enable the Hostform to Listen the keyboard event, when the docked window in Floating State.
this.dockingManager1.ForwardMenuShortcuts=true;

 

VB

'True, Enable the Hostform to Listen the keyboard event, when the docked window in Floating State.
Me.DockingManager1.ForwardMenuShortcuts=True

 

Note:

This works only with Syncfusion XPMenus framework. We could not pass the Menushortcut keys to Windows menus.
