    Default Keyboard shortcuts for form

    Im trying to figure out how to create keyboard shortcuts for the buttons I have created in my form and Im struggling to find an answer in the documentation.
    I figured you would be able to set it in the button properties but no luck.

    Any ideas?

    Also, you can specify an "Accelerator key" for your button, by putting an ampersand symbol (&) immediately before the desired letter in the label that appears on the button. That button will then appear with an underscore beneath the letter. When focus is on a field in the form and the user holds down the Ctrl key and then clicks the underscored key the button will be pushed.
