Return value

Return code Description
The container processed the message.
The container did not process the message. This value must also be returned in all other error cases besides E_NOTIMPL.
The container does not implement accelerator support.


This method is called by a control that can be UI-active. In such cases, a control can process all keystrokes first through IOleInPlaceActiveObject::TranslateAccelerator, according to normal OLE Compound Document rules. Inside that method, the control can give the container certain messages to process first by calling IOleControlSite::TranslateAccelerator and using the return value to determine if any processing took place. Otherwise, the control always processes the message first. If the control does not use the keystroke as an accelerator, it passes the keystroke to the container through this method.
