the keyEquivalentField only seems to allow actual characters, but i need the Enter key to be there aswell.
<item label="Properties" key="enter" altKey="true" />
i have tried pretty much everything, even attempted to create a keyequivfunction to try to bypass the single character limit in the xml.
What Menu control are you using?
Sorry, i figured out the answer shortly after posting.
I set the keyequivalent field for the specific menuitem seperately using the ascii value:
keyEquivalentField = String.fromCharCode(13) + "ENTER";
the key equiv only looks for the first char, so putting ENTER on the end allows the description to show up in the menu.
it was FlexNativeMenu btw.
