Shortcut keys on a webpage

  • 12 years ago

    Hi, We are attempting to uplift a homemade VB Windows applicaiton to ASP.Net and need some help. While the VB application seems to have short cut keys like Wash, Mop and the user is able to navigate them by using Alt+W & Alt+M as the case may be, doing this in a webpage seems challenging. How do I prompt the user by providing a "_" under the respective shortcut key ? Other information that will be helpful to know is that we have about 200 such keys in a 25-30 page application. The key to this applicaiton will be that we use the keyboard as much as possible.

     Any pointers would be great, Thank you !
