When I create following the accelator &F (Alt+F) not works for Datei (file).
That means the mainmenu from File is not shown, when i press Alt+F.

MyMenuBar > MyCommandbarPopup "&File" > MyButton with caption="&Fancy"
MyMenubar > MycommandbarPopup "&Vorlagen" > MyCommandbarPopup "Te&st2" > MyButton3 with caption "&Fancy2"

I want open the filemenu when I press Alt+F
But I want open myButton(&Fancy) when i press alt+F and then F.

Also the keybinding "Alt+I" not works, when I create following:
MymenuBar => adxCommandbarPopup "&test" > myButton2 with Caption="$Index"

we want that the shortcut Alt+I works and
Alt+T then I opens the mybutton2(&Index).

Can you please help us?

Hello Rosemarie,

The issue is now filed down under #15610 in our issue-tracking DB.

The only workaround available at the moment is to set HandleShortcuts=False on the module. Since this effectively disables all ADXKeyboardShortcut components, this workaround can't suit you. We work on this issue. When I have news, I'll post a note here.

Regards from Belarus (GMT+3),
