How to receive a keydown event on an ActiveX control?

I have a VB6 program which can receive Keydown events on an ActiveX control.

The ActiveX control can't fire keydown events so I put a picturebox below
the ActiveX control. I write codes in function picturebox_keyd own in
response to the keydown events on the ActiveX control. These can work well.

But when I update these codes to vb.net I got a message 'UPGRADE_WARNIN G:
PictureBox event Picture1.KeyDow n can't be updated. Click to get more
information:ms-help://MS.VSCC.2003/commoner/redir/redirect.htm?ke yword="vbup
2050" . Does anyone know¡¡how¡¡to¡¡ receive a keydown event on an ActiveX
control£¿Thanks in advance.

I am trying to detect the keydown of the arrow keys in a custom control that I am writing. As far as I can tell, pressing the arrow keys does not fire the KeyDown event at all. It behaves just like the tab key, passing focus to the next control in the tab order. The only events that fire are in the lost focus sequence (leave, validating, validated, etc.) Any ideas?

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 custom control that contains a class that Inherits the panel control. I am trying to catch a keydown event in this class and then supress it from the rest of the control as well as the form that hosts the control. The problem I am running into is that the form that hosts the control will respond to the keydown event event. Any ideas what I am missing? Some source code to help:

I'm building a simple "breakout" style video-game, and I want keyboard control of the paddle. What I need is for an event handler to respond whenever a key is pressed, regardless of what the focus is set to. So far, the best I've been able to accomplish is to create a button and have that button handle the KeyDown event. I've tried using KeyDown on the form, but it simply doesn't work. I did a search on this, and found on site that...

I have a Panel control docked on all sides on a form and the panel control contains a PictureBox. I'm using the KeyDown event of the form to respond to the and keys for resizing the image and the PageUp, PageDn, Home, End, and arrow keys for scrolling the Panel control. Resizing the image using the and keys works fine, deriving a resized thumbnail from the image and reassigning it to the Image property of the PictureBox. However I'm...

I have a VB 2005 windows app and I want to recognize keydown events. I have a form key down event handler but it does not get control when a key is depressed. In playing around I found that if I add a keydown event handler for some control on the form, say a textbox ... Private Sub txtBox_KeyDown(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.KeyEventArgs) Handles txtBox.KeyDown) and then give that control focus the keydown...

The main reason you would want to do this is for example to trigger something from an OnPaint event without resorting to boolean switches-- say if a user presses the "M" key while the program is Painting, the user gets the PaintHandler to do something else. ...
