The attribute "mnemonic" is valid for every child tile. Specify one character with this attribute. The first appearance of the specified character in the label of the tile will be underlined. In a running dcl dialog, pressing alt+character will move the focus to the tile with matching mnemonic. If multiple tiles share the same mnemonic, the focus will be cycled through those tiles. Mind that not all tiles can receive focus, for instance a plain label cannot receive focus. A mnemonic can also be specified by using the ampersand character & in the attribute label. When the mnemonic of a button tile is used, the button will receive focus AND it will be activated. When the mnemonic of an edit_box tile is used, the edit_box will receive focus AND all of its contents will be selected.
