I can't see underline characters on menus

Do you have a typical platform dependent issue you're battling with ? Ask it here. Make sure you mention your platform, compiler, and wxWidgets version.

I can't see underline characters on menus

When I define a menu text, ex: &File I see on execution "File" not "File" I did several tests. Any idea? Regards

Which platform? Under Windows the short cuts for menus (not menu entries) only show up when you press ALT. You should see the same behavior in other applications, too.

Do you see the same in the wxWidgets samples, e.g. the "minimal" sample? If yes, there might be nothing you can do about this.
