I can't believe it - CLabel's don't do mnemonics?

What would be the best way to do this?

And while on the topic of CLabel's, it would be nice if GAP was modifiable
by the API.

Why are you using a CLabel? If all you want is a label with text and an
image, just create two labels, one with text and one with an image. Labels
support mnemonics and you would be able to adjust the spacing as desired.

Hehe, I indeed just found your entries in the bug list, indirectly since
somehow my mnemonics now appear to be broken (they are in a view, in a
CTabFolder) so I was looking for info about that.

Indeed, I just resorted to two labels. Just feels a bit... contrived, I
guess.

By the way, where can I read more about exactly how the mnemonics are
connected to items? Is there no way to programatically assign the mnemonic
to a specific control, just in case the "next widget" algorithm doesn't work
properly? (or the layout on the UI isn't quite what is expected) ?

Thanks,
- Eddie
