When To Use

If you want any of the commands in your extension to have keyboard accelerators associated with them, your extension needs to implement IExtensionAccelerators. In your class module for your extension you would implement both IExtension and IExtensionAccelerators.

The CreateAccelerators method creates the accelerators for the extension. This method is called when the accelerator table is created during application startup, when a new document is created, or when a document is opened.
