Handling Keyboard Shortcuts

BD
How can I duplicate the behavior of the operating system shortcut keys
in my application? For example, my windows form has 5 controls
(textboxes), the operating system will pickup which control has the
focus and handle ctrl-c, ctrl-v, or any other shortcuts. I have the
same shortcuts working in my app, but have not determined how to find
out which control has focus. Would I set up a loop or code for each
control at form level. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I'm not sure you really understand how keyboard input happens. The OS
isn't doing anything special for control-modified keys. All it does is
make sure that the keyboard input is sent to whatever window has the
current focus, and that window deals with it.

In the case of .NET, each instance of Control has its own window, and when
the Control has focus, that means its window has focus and is receiving
keyboard input. Then it's simply a matter of the Control handling the
input as appropriate.

If you want your own custom control to handle keyboard input, you need to
make sure that your control can receive focus, and is handling the
keyboard input messages. Once you've done that, then if and when your
control actually has the focus, it will automatically receive the keyboard
input, which you can then inspect, looking for special key input such as
Ctrl-C, Ctrl-V, etc.

At no point should you need to worry about which control actually has the
focus. Assuming you've implemented your control properly, it will receive
keyboard input appropriately when it has focus, without any additional
effort from you.

Note that for your control to receive focus, its CanFocus property needs
to return "true" (i.e. set the ControlStyle.Selectable flag with the
SetStyle() method). You should also make sure that your control has some
visible representation that indicates when it has focus, which of course
means handling the focus events (e.g. override OnGotFocus(),
OnLostFocus()) so that you know when your state changes.

I do agree, I may not understand how keyboard input works, I have only
been learning programming for about the past two years on my own. I
perhaps didn't state my issue correctly. The form does use the
shortcuts but with a twist. This is why I posted the way I did. If
my form has the EDIT menu that has the general items inserted, 'ctrl-
v' will not work. However, if you do 'ctrl-shift-v' the program will
paste from the clipboard. If I remove the EDIT menu, 'ctrl-v' or any
of the other shortcuts will work correctly. That is why I thought the
OS was controlling the shortcut. I have looked on the net for some
time to find an answer or even an example of what I see and have come
up empty. I did try protected override bool ProcessCmdKey(ref Message
msg, Keys keyData), which will make the shortcuts work properly, but I
have to identify which textbox to process. That is why I thought I
needed to find out which control has the focus. Again, thanks for the
fast response to my question and I hope to hear from you about my
follow-up.

I guess that depends on your definition of "OS". Based on your
description, it's possible that .NET is somehow treating your "EDIT" menu
as something special. One thing you might want to try is making sure that
the menu has the usual shortcut keys assigned to each item in the menu.

Beyond that, you will probably need to post a concise-but-complete code
sample that reliably demonstrates the problem. You can describe the issue
in plain English until you're blue in the face, but doing so will never
provide nearly as precise or accurate a description of the problem as an
actual working code sample.

The app I am sending is a testing app that I created for control
testing. I just created it the other day. It has two forms, one form
to tell me the ASCII numbers of the keys I am pressing the main form
which is form1. Form1 is very simple with only two textboxes and two
labels. Textbox1 is a multi-line textbox. I used the standard menu
inserted by Visual Studio 2005 (file, edit, tools, help). The
following is the code I have from Form1.cs:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Data;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Text;
using System.Windows.Forms;

namespace TestingApplication
{
public partial class Form1 : Form
{
public Form1()
{
InitializeComponent();
}

protected override bool ProcessCmdKey(ref Message msg, Keys
keyData)
{
const int WM_KEYDOWN = 0x100;
const int WM_SYSKEYDOWN = 0x104;

if ((msg.Msg == WM_KEYDOWN) || (msg.Msg == WM_SYSKEYDOWN))
{
switch (keyData)
{
case (Keys.V | Keys.Control):
textBox1.Text = Clipboard.GetText();
return true;
break;

case (Keys.C | Keys.Control):
if (textBox1.SelectedText != "")

Clipboard.SetDataObject(textBox1.SelectedText);
else
MessageBox.Show("There is no data to copy
to the clipboard.");
return true;
break;
}
}
return base.ProcessCmdKey(ref msg, keyData);
}

private void undoToolStripMenuItem_Click(object sender,
EventArgs e)
{
textBox1.Undo();
}

private void selectAllToolStripMenuItem_Click(object sender,
EventArgs e)
{
textBox1.SelectionStart = 0;
textBox1.SelectionLength = textBox1.TextLength;
}

private void editToolStripMenuItem_Click(object sender,
EventArgs e)
{
if (textBox1.SelectionLength == 0)
{
cutToolStripMenuItem.Enabled = false;
copyToolStripMenuItem.Enabled = false;
}
}

private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
KeyCode frm = new KeyCode();
frm.Show();
frm.Focus();
}

If the designer code is needed, I will send it as well. Again, when
the 'edit' menu is there, shortcut keys for copy and paste for example
require the key combination 'ctrl+shift+c' or 'ctrl+shift+v'.
However, if the edit menu is removed, 'ctrl+c' or 'ctrl+v' work as
they are should.

Inasmuch as your question seems to be specifically related to the exact
configuration of the menus, you should either create the menus
programmatically in the Form1 class, or you should post the complete
Designer code for the test application.
