Windows requirements

Device family

API contract
Windows.Foundation.UniversalApiContract (introduced in v3.0)


This event indicates that the action associated with the access key sequence should be invoked. For example, if an element’s AccessKey is "A" and the user presses Alt-A.

An access key can have one or several characters. This event occurs only when users type all the characters of an access key. For example, if an AccessKey value is "BC", the event doesn't occur when the user presses "B". The event occurs when the user presses "B", then "C".

This event occurs when the key is pressed, not when it's released.
