Hi Win,

You need to set the KeyPreview property of the form to true, which
indicates that the form will receive key events before the event is passed
to the control that has focus.

Hope this helps.
If you have any question, please feel free to let me know.

Sincerely,
Linda Liu

Hi,
If you want to close the form with a keypress having with several
controls on the form:
First set "KeyPreview " value to "true" in form properties.
Then simpy associate keydown event with form:

'Here is key for F12, you can change it whatever you want:

Private Sub Form1_keydown(B yVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As
System.Windows. Forms.KeyEventA rgs) Handles MyBase.KeyDown
If e.KeyCode = Keys.F12 Then
Me.Close()
End If

Hope this helps.

Thanks.

Hi, I am a python newbie. I have created a tool for capturing the screen shot. I want to be able to do the screen capture with the keydown event as well. The tool worked fine when it first opened. However, if I keep the tool open, and open another window to do the screen capture, the tool will lose its focus, and the keydown event will not work anymore. I wonder if any of you can help me to solve this problem of how to get the focus...

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?

I have a Datagrid that is inside a panel. I want to use the keyDown event to reconize the arrow keys. But I have no luck at all. The problem is that the keydown event won't fire at all, unless I click on a row (withs will turn blue then) and then click on it again . Now if I press any key the event will fire (except for the arrow keys). I also tried to override the IsInputKey => no luck. I also tried to override the ProcessCmdKey => With...

I am building a hoem theatre app that is controlled by an IR Remote Control. The Remote has some keys that map to "keyboard" commands (i.e. PageUp, PageDown.).

I have a control that handles the KeyDown event but it does not seem to execute when a combination of keys is pressed - like CTRL+Z. If I press CTRL, it executes. If I press Z, it executes. But the handler does not see the combination. Now this control is contained within another control which is contained within another. The top most control does see the CTRL+Z. I can easily pass down the key info, but why does the nested control see...
