Recognizing keystrokes?

Hello,

Is there any way I can tell which key was pressed in VB Code using the
OnKeyPress event? I'd like to know if the user is pressing the up, down,
left or right arrow.

Thanks!

Thanks Hansen, The "Cursor Value" isn't occuring when I hit the up, down
left or right keys. If I hit the letter / number keys, the keypress is
registering, but nothing when I hit the keys I want. Any ideas?

Try using the KeyDown (not KeyPressed) event, and test the KeyCode

As Roy-Vidar indicated you need to use the KeyDown event to trap arrow
and function keys. KeyPress only shows ASCII values.

In KeyDown, the value KeyCode will contain:

Up-Arrow: 38
Down-Arrow: 40
Left-Arrow: 37
Right-Arrow: 39
