How to pass keystroke/keyevent to a user control?

P: n/a
i have a main form, with user controls populating it.
i'm trying to capture a keyevent for the control that's populating the
form but it never fires that event.

the main form's keypreview property is set to true

but when i assing the "keydown" event on the user control, nothing
happens. i set a breakpoint in the event method and nothing...it never
hits.

i assigned the event to the main form's "keydown" and it fires fine. no
problems.

but for some reason, basically the exact same code set to this
control's keydown event does nothing...?!

please help...
