How Do I Make Button.click Event Perform both the enter and period(del) keys on the numeric keypad? [Code] Case Keys.Enter and Case Keys.Separator do not work. Nor does anything like Keys.OEMPeriod for the period(del) key. I've also tried calling the enter key in a KeyPress event etc. But to no avail. Any ideas? I'm trying to mimic Windows calc.exe for a school project and thought I'd try throwing in a few extras such as numeric keypad functionality.

Anyone know how we can connect a USB cable to one of the ports on the computer and send keys to it and have that acted like it was a keyboard if the cable was connected to another computer? I'm sure the USB jump drive for example is like a mini-computer, so how do we do the same thing but with a computer? Is there any code in VB, .NET for this?
I'm trying to display the square root symbol on a button in a windows form. I'm using the unicode U+221A which on windows character map is the root sign.

I have to create a form that I enter the price of gas each month over a year. I enter the price in a text box and click the enter button to send the price to a list box immediatley and use an array.

I may be doing this wrong but I want to call a sub when the user presses enter on a textbox. The sub then shows a window in dialog mode. When I close that window, the computer makes a ding sound.

i really dont get it. i want to put keyboard shortcuts on the button i have other than clicking this buttons. but the problem is i dont know how. i tried putting an ampersand (&) sign before the text of the buttons and it work, but the ampersand sign also displays. heres the original code:
I have a form that you can type in a four digit code and press enter and will will run some code on a database. The problem occurs when a user click their 4 digit ID number and then click enter, the next user then comes up, types their 4 digit ID on the number pad and when they press enter it runs the code twice (this is due to the fact that the enter button has focus, meaning i intercept the enter, run my code, then the button runs that same code)
To start off with, I will say that I have tried ENDLESS attempts to surpress/capture/stop the actual sleep keystroke.
The code cannot require administrator privilege's. .
Private Overrides Sub ProcessCmdKey, and Return true when the sleep key is pressed - did not disable sleep key LowLevelKeyboard - One that can disable the windows logo key - did not disable sleep key And many other keyhandling events, etc.
The code cannot create registry keys because that requires admin privilege's.
