Hi, I am stuck... I've got a popup window that displays a list in table format with links on the bottom to navigate the list <prev> 1 2 3 ... <next> When I demo'd to the users... they immediately asked if they could use the arrow keys and enter key to navigate the list. I think there must be a way to do this, but I can't figure it out.

Hi, I have a user control that needs to trap the arrow keys to move items around internally. However, using the arrow keys will move the focus to another control on the form hosting the user control. How do I stop this? Vincent.

I'll kick myself when you tell me, but ... I have a user control on a form, and I want the user control to see the arrow keys when I press them. If I press just about any other key the control's KeyDown event is fired, but not when I press a direction key. I want to see them in the KeyDown event so that I can respond as soon as the key is...
