C Keyboard Shortcuts
C.5 Access Keys
Access keys move the focus to a specific UI element.
Access keys relocate cursor or selection focus to specific interface components. Every component on the page with definable focus is accessible by tab traversal (using Tab and Shift+Tab); however, access keys provide quick focus to frequently used components. Access keys must be unique within a page.
The result of pressing an access key depends on the associated element and the browser:
Buttons: In both Firefox and Internet Explorer, access keys give focus to the component and directly execute the action.
Links: In Firefox, access keys give focus to the component and directly navigate the link; in Internet Explorer, access keys give focus only to the link.
Other Elements: In both browsers, access keys give focus only to the element.
This works as described for Firefox.
However, for Internet Explorer, the property accessKey in af:commandToolbarButtons and tabs does not execute the action.
