Description Stephen McConnel 2014-10-01 15:48:34 UTC

TestToolStripShortcuts.zip contains a small program that demonstrates the bug.

ToolStrip.ProcessMnemonic for some reason tries to accept the leading character of a ToolStripItem.Text as a shortcut key ("mnemonic"), not just characters explicitly marked as shortcut keys by an & in the text string.  This does not happen on Windows using .Net, and it can prevent valid shortcut keys from being processed correctly.  I'm attaching a simple example program to illustrate the problem.

The same code exists in version 3.6, but this was discovered using version 3.4.
