Creating an Accelerator table

To create a keyboard accelerator table you select Accelerator from the Project menu. The following dialog will appear:

The function of the table is similar to the editor. You must give your accelerator table an ID number to identify it in the resource section of your program and optionally a name that will be exported with Export Id Equates

To add an accelerator table entry press Add, then give the key at least an ID. Clicking on the Key field will show a drop down list of keys that are available to use as accelerators choose the key you want then check the modifiers that you wish to assign to that key. Once you have done press OK and the table will be saved to an RC file and added to your project.
