Hi Miguel,

I think this is actually a "feature" :roll: of the Windows XP look and feel. Try this, make sure the window containing the button has focus, and then hold down the "Alt" key. The mnemonic will then be displayed, as long as the "Alt" key is pressed.
With all of the possible Look and Feel classes, it's hard to determine whats a feature, and whats a bug.
Hope that helps!

Darrin
