BarItems can have keyboard shortcuts that allow your end-users to quickly perform the required action. These shortcuts can be set using the BarItem.ItemShortcut property. BarItem shortcuts are visible within sub-menus and pop-up menus if the ShowItemShortcut property equals DefaultBoolean.Default or DefaultBoolean.True. The figure below illustrates a sample pop-up menu, whose Undo, Copy, Cut and Paste items display their shortcuts, while the Clear and Select All items don’t.
