Detecting when the Enter key is pressed?

P: 102
Visual Basic - Visual Studio - 2016

I have a form with text boxes on it. In one of the text boxes I want to detect when the user hits the enter key so I can preform a routine.

How do you detect when a user presses the Enter key in a text box?

Simply use the TextBox1_KeyDown event, with code similar to the following:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1.     Private Sub TextBox1_KeyDown(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.KeyEventArgs) Handles TextBox1.KeyDown
  2.         If e.KeyCode = Keys.Enter Then
  3.             MsgBox("Enter Key Pressed!")
  4.         End If
  5.     End Sub
