ProcessDialogKe y keyData == (Key.Control | Key.Shift | Key.L) is no longer trapped

keyData == (Keys.Control | Keys.Shift | Keys.L) used to trap this
combination in the ProcessDialogKe y method
Why does this combination no longer work?

Hi Wally,
the ProcessDialogKe y method is used to handle the Return and Escape keys
in a dialog window. The Microsoft documentation states that this method will
not handle any processing for ALT or CTRL modifiers. You should put your key
processing inside the ProcessCmdKey method instead.

To your question I don't know if it worked in 1.1 (I only currently have
2.0 installed) but the 1.1 documentation looks the same as the 2.0
documentation and I doubt Microsoft would have made a breaking change like
that to the semantics of an existing function.

Hope that helps
Mark Dawson

unfortunately, we had such breaking changes in the past so there's nothing
to doubt.

Hi, I am still confused the different between ProcessCmdKey and ProcessDialogKey. When to use it? I write a simple user control and these 2 override functions looks the same to me. protected override bool ProcessCmdKey(ref Message msg, Keys keyData) { const int WM_KEYDOWN = 0x100; const int WM_SYSKEYDOWN = 0x104;
