shortkey confusion

I created a menubar for my GUI, but where should I attach the shortkey? should i set up the shortkey for the buttons or for menu, or both? Are there any principles in the HCI concerning this side?
Frankly speaking, i cant see any purpose in providing a menubar for a SDI application, only for confusing the clients. I created it just for "show to the marker that i know how to do that", as many posts in the saloon advised. And that's why i cant find any reference about the shortkey issue in my real practices.
How do you think about that?
James

hi james,
yes, you donot have to write the shortkeys,let all be default.
to check radio buttons and click buttons use the space bar.to select the first component of menubar use F10
