Reported by: rover Owned by: Gary
Milestone: Component: Standard UDFs
Version: Severity:
Keywords: _GUICtrlToolBar_Create(), beta Cc:


Toolbar button text accelerator prefix underscore disappears
when a Button/Radio/Checkbox/Group control is added to GUI

Tested on 2 machines running XP SP2+ EN X86
AutoIt: Prod. v3.2.10.0, Beta v3.2.11.7

The problem is intermittent when run from SciTE,
but consistent when compiled.

  • Resolution set to No Bug
  • Status changed from new to closed

I'm assuming that you have the option selected to "Hide underlined letters for keyboard navigation until I press the Alt key" checked (Display Properties -> Effects). Whenever I disable this option, I correctly see the underline always. When this option is enabled, you shouldn't expect to see the underline until you press the Alt key.

I don't see any behavior here that is bug-worthy.
