How to handle keypress in VB.NET

59 New Member
Hi, sgrec7 here.

so anyway in VB 6 this is how you would use keyascii's

private sub form_keypress (keyascii as integer)

if keyascii = 13 enter key then
end if

end sub

that was easy, but how the f&(# do you do that in VB 8 ???? any help will be much appreciated !! thanks

Yep looks like you have the idea... I said in my post that the code handled text box presses, but what you have written will allow for keypresses on whole form.

You can use any number in brackets for a keycode, there are lists of what the values are online, I think there is one in MSDN if you just search "keycodes"

Glad I could help!

Is there an easy way to capture the keypress - keydown events from a LABEL control ? Standard the control doesn't handle these events. The label control inherits from the control class , and this class has the keypress - keydown event handlers. So i believe this must be possible ? k/Regards,

I have a VB.NET user control that I wrote - this control has three or four other controls on it (textbox, combobox, datetime picker, etc). Now, whenever the control is on a form and the user enters anything into the textbox (for instance) I trap the keypress event to handle some stuff (i.e. if it is an enter key, etc). Now, once I am done with handling the keypress event for the textbox, I then need to pass that keypress event BACK to the...

I have noticed that if a user closes a form via pressing return (either while the OK button has focus or if AcceptButton is set to OK for the form) then the "ENTER" keypress event fires ON THE CALLING FORM! This is very bad for me, because in my application, Form1 responds to an ENTER keypress by calling Form2. If the user closes Form2 via an ENTER, then Form1 just reopens it again, kind of trapping the user in Form2 (they can still close...

Hi In Visual Basic 6 I could call keypress with an integer of a choosen key. For example I could call a textbox's keypress with the number 13 (for the enter key). But now in Visual Basic .Net I don't know how I shall do to do the same thing. I have tried to send Keys.Numpad8, but then it complains about it cannot convert from Keys to keyEventArgs I have also tried to send the number 8, but then it complains it cannot convert from Integer...
