Hrvoje,

A char is an unicode in Net and than as byte format dependend from the code
table you use.

The Esc is (in any ACSII derived codetable because it is bellow the 128) a
byte with a decimal 27 value.

I hope this helps,

Hi,

A good way to find out which key does what is to use the KeyPress/KeyDown
events and see what gets passed when you hit a key.

protected override void OnKeyPress(KeyPressEventArgs e)
{
MessageBox.Show(((int)e.KeyChar).ToString());
}

(PS. KeyPreview must be set or the control/form must be empty)

No, ASCII is only 7 bytes, 0-127. The byte range 127-255 varies from
system to system based on the current codepage used.
