Description Hin-Tak Leung 2015-09-19 17:41:27 UTC
The code concerned is something like this:

this.menuItem3 = new System.Windows.Forms.MenuItem();

this.menuItem3.MenuItems.AddRange(new System.Windows.Forms.MenuItem[] {
                        this.menuItem3.Shortcut = System.Windows.Forms.Shortcut.CtrlO;
                        this.menuItem3.Text = "Open";

The menu item corresponds to a sub-menu of two items. There is no Click event hooked up to this menu item.
The CtrlO is a mistake and therefore redundant (I inherited this code... don't blame me...).

Mono's System.Windows.Forms shows an unsighty "CTRL-O" overlapping and squashing an arrow for the submenu.

MS.net's System.Windows.Forms does not show the "CTRL-O" at all - apparently because there is no event registered
to that?

Granted this seems a programmer's idiosyncrasy, but Mono's SWF behaves differently from MS's SWF.
