Quick tip – assigning Command+Letter shortcuts to FMX menu items

Delphi Haven – It’s not obvious since the forms designer doesn’t support it, but the way to assign a Cmd+Letter shortcut to a menu item in FireMonkey/OS X application in XE2 is to do so at runtime. For example, say you have a ‘file open’ item called itmFileOpen, and want to assign it the shortcut Cmd+O; to do so, create an OnCreate event handler for the form by double clicking it, then add the following line: mnuFileOpen := scCommand or Ord('O'); At runtime, this will ensure the proper shortcut symbol appears next to the item (⌘O), as well as make the actual key combination work.
