Hey guys,
I've just started using 'resources' and playing with menus.
I noticed that LccWin32 does not appear to underline letters that
&File
in a menu item. In this case the 'F' should be underscored. At least
according to the Petzold book.
I know that VB works that way.
Am I missing something here ?

Thanks,
steve

Use press ALT-key - and underlines will appear.

press ALT-key while running the test (or the prog itself) - underlines
will appear then.

you press the Alt key.  You can change this so the underlines always
appear (this is always one of the first things I do with a new Windows
system).

In XP Pro:

Control Panel > Display
Select the Appearance tab
Click the Effects button
Disable "Hide underlined letters for keyboard navigation until I
press the Alt key".

Thanks, Keith and Babe,
Both were the answers I was looking for.

tkinter: Can You Underline More Than 1 Char In A Menu Title
I am currently underling the first character of a menu title (to indicate its shortcut/accelerator key) like this: self.WildBtn = Menubutton(self.mBar, text=WILDMENU, underline=0, state=DISABLED) However, I intend to actually have two separate keys invoke this menu to have it behave differently in different circumstances. Is it possible to underline more than a single character as I am doing with the 'underline=0' above. I tried 'underline=(0,2)' but that didn't work. Ideas?

I'm trying to set up my Custom menu on my HP49G+. I'd like to have a soft key called "DMS" that I can use to call up another set of soft keys with various functions that work with numbers in the HMS format.

underline
I have an external JS menu of links which get underlined on mouse over as specified through CSS. But since I break the bulleted list of link-lines myself, there is an extra space underlined at the beginning of the new line that is created after the break that reaches from under the bullet position to the first letter of the continuing text. Is there any way to get rid of this empty underline at the beginning of the line. Thanks! Not sure I understand, but why not use an html list instead of using link breaks? How are the bullets created? Bullets are from the JS (I need interactive menus),...
