Being Pedantic - Do your buttons have a mnemonic?

Last updated by Tiago Araújo [SSW] over 1 year ago.See history

A mnemonic for a button is the letter which has an underscore, and the user can press the button using Alt-<char>.

Figure: Bad example - All buttons without Mnemonic

Figure: Good example - All buttons with Mnemonic - user can easily choose which button they want without a click

In Windows Applications, it is quite easy to assign a mnemonic to a button with the "&" character.

So for the case above, the text would be:

btnAbout.Text = "&About"
