How to bind a keyboard key to a Webmethods Control


I need to bind specific keyboard keys to some controls in my Webmethods Portlet. There is a property almost under each control called Access Key which has tooltip saying “Keyboard shorcut letter” which is exactly what I need, but I cannot make it work. I tried letters, ‘’ with a letter, “” with a letter… nothing worked. Could somebody provide me a list of possible values this property can take? or some examples?

Thanks for the help.

I was able to access to the control I linked the Access Key to. But now, I got another question. Is there a way to trigger the control with a keyboard shorcut instead of just accessing it?
