Being Pedantic - Do your buttons have a mnemonic?
24/02/2017 1:33 AM by
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"
Tip: In Windows XP the mnemonic display effects can be hidden by Default and then shown every time the user presses the Alt key.
Do you feel this rule needs an update?
