The DevExpress ASP.NET MVC Ribbon extension provides end-users with the capability to navigate through ribbon items using the keyboard. To enable this behavior, set the KeyboardSupport property to true. The KeyTipModeShortcut property allows you to specify a keyboard shortcut, which when pressed will show tab key tips. The key tips can also be displayed by calling the client-side ShowKeyTips method.
The ribbon extension automatically generates access keys for tabs, groups, and items. However, you can specify the required access key manually by using the following properties.
- MVCxRibbonTab.AccessKey specifies the access key for a ribbon tab.
- MVCxRibbonGroup.AccessKey specifies the access key for a ribbon group.
- RibbonItemBase.AccessKey specifies the access key for a ribbon item.
- RibbonSettings.FileTabAccessKey specifies the access key for a ribbon file tab.
You can disable the access key auto generation by setting the AutoGenerateAccessKeys property to false. However, in this case, you should specify access key for every element manually.
