Topic: Creating Plugin shortcuts and calling built-in menuitems

I'm am new to Acrobat SDK (6) and unfortunately to C++ and I'm having a few problems with seemingly simple tasks for a custom plugin.
1) I can't get custom menuitem shortcut keys to work. using the SDK example;
myButtonMenuItem = AVMenuItemNew(
"&Hello World", "Hello", NULL, false,
"H", AV_CONTROL || AV_SHIFT, NULL,
generates a compile error "cannot convert parameter 5 from 'char ' to 'char'". If anyone can demonsrtrate an example showing how to correctly invoke a shortcut key (e.g. a function key) I'd be very very grateful.
2) I can't seem to hide the toolbar. Unlike the menubar (AVMenubarHide(AVAppGetMenubar()), there doesn't seem to be a function to do this, so I am trying to call the appropriate built-in menuitem. eg.
However, this doesn't work, presumably as the menuitem name is incorrect as with every other combination I've tried to date. Can anyone tell me the correct syntax for calling in-built menuitems?
