VB 2008 - Make Event Perform Both Enter And Period(del) Keys On Numerical Keyboard

Nov 3, 2009

How Do I Make 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.

Forms :: Disable Enter As Button Click?

Apr 16, 2010

Is there a way to prevent the Enter key from being interpreted as a button click.

I am trapping key strokes at the form level but if a button has the focus and the ENTER key is pressed I cannot trap the enter because the button consumes it as a button click event. I am also unable to trap the enter key in any of the button's key events.

I am interfacing with magtripe swipe and barcode readers that send their information as keystrokes with a CRLF at the end. I have a work around by chaning the focus to a textbox anytime keystrokes are detected but I am hoping for better control.

Is there a way to disable the buttons ability to do this?

Stop Enter Button From Pressing A Button?

Jun 16, 2011

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)

Disable Sleep Button On Keyboard?

Sep 12, 2011

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. .

I tried:

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.

VS 2008 Activate A Keyboard Button With Code?

Dec 24, 2009

I was making a program where it takes text from a textbox on one form, and places into a textbox on another form. If the first text I am taking says "test" Then the buttons code would be:

Form2.TextBox1.Text = Me.TextBox1.Text

This works, however, if there were two textboxes in the first form, and I wanted this:

Form2.TextBox1.Text = Me.TextBox1.Text
Form2.TextBox1.Text = Me.TextBox2.Text

- this would not work because one of them will override. I wanted to know how I could send a key into the form just once. I have tried this:

Form2.TextBox1.Text = Me.TextBox1.Text & ("{ENTER}")
Form2.TextBox1.Text = Me.TextBox2.Text
