Run-time menu pulldown using alt+first letter

I use application builder to distribute executables.

When used on machines with no mouse I would like the user to be able to
browse through the runtime menues by pulling them down pressing ALT+first
letter of meny name and then use the arrow keys....just like in other
Windows software.

Is it possible to achieve this, and if so how?

So far I have keyboard shortcuts for the different menu items, however then
the user has to know and remember those, it would be much better if it was
possible to browse through them even if you don´t have a mouse connected.

It is possible if you have built your menus with _ keys.
When declaring the menu item name, place a _ before the
key that you want to be underlined. Even if this isn't
done, you user can Alt and use arrows to walk between
the items.

To get between controls, use Tab. Use Ctl-down arrow to
tab into clusters, tables, and arrays.
