KeyPress Event Not Working?

Feb 15, 2012

I just want to ask why my KeyPress event is apparently not working. What I want is that when I press the letter m, the selectedindex property of my listboxes would change. Here is the code;

Select Case Asc(e.KeyChar)
Case 13
tray.ListBox1.SelectedIndex = tray.ListBox1.SelectedIndex + 1


I also want to know what the "e.handled = true" is statement for. I set the KeyPreview property of my form to false and true but it's not working as well. the KeyPress event should be triggered regardless of the control within the form that is in focus.

Keypress (not Send) Event?

Jun 2, 2010

I couldn't manage what the matter is not even after searching. Here my question goes:I need to do a simple task (close my form on pressing escape key) and I use the following code:

Protected Overrides Sub OnKeyDown(ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.KeyEventArgs)
Select Case (e.KeyData)
'Close on Escape

Well , it works when I click escape my form closes , but.. if I have pressed by accident or some else matter any of the arrow keys (up , down , left , right) before escape and then hit escape nothing happens. I checked if any other key does that and as I see it does not.

KeyPress Event Using Scanner Gun?

Nov 15, 2011

I am trying to create keypress handler that will execute a line of code when Tab, Space, or Enter key is pressed or passed by the scanner gun while the control is in focus.

Supressing The Keypress Event

Mar 4, 2009

I'm trying to create an application that uses a PictureBox to display an image. I use the arrows keys to switch images and the space bar to rotate the current image. Since the KeyDown or KeyPress events don�t get fired when I click the arrow keys, I had to override ProcessCmdKey. It works fine, the problem is: the applications also has a few buttons and when I click an arrow key the image gets switched but the button�s focus change as well, worst yet, when I press the space bar, the image gets rotated but the button which has the focus gets pressed.

ENTER Keypress Event Only Handled Once?

Jun 22, 2010

I am trying to add to items to a combobox by using the "enter" key. It does work when I add the first item, but if I manually clear the box and add another items it does not get added to the list.

(1) I click in the combobox and type "hello" and press the "enter" key

(2) I click on the dropdown arrow and see that "hello" is in the list

(3) I select "hello" in the box and erase it, item is still in the list

(4) I type "goodbye" in the box and press the "enter" key

(5) "hello" is still in the list but "goodbye" is not

Here is the code:

Private Sub CopyrightCombo_Keypress(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.KeyPressEventArgs) Handles CopyrightCombo.KeyPress
If e.KeyChar = Microsoft.VisualBasic.ChrW(Keys.Return) Then


if I comment the if/end if line and type "hello" the items added to the combobox list are: "h", "he", "hel", "hell", "hello" wich makes sens since the add items is run on every keypress? I know that my commands for adding items is good, I know that my keypress event is handled properly but not when I specify using the "enter" key.

How To Handle Enter KeyPress Event

Jul 19, 2010

I am using the Event Handler below for the Enter Key Press Event, it is running when ever any of the keys is pressed. This is not so much a problem when the app. is running, unnecessary yes. It is giving me problems when ever I am Debugging using Breakpoints. How can I change the Handler so it only runs when the Enter Key is Pressed, doing away with the If statement?

Private Sub Form1_KeyPress(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.KeyPressEventArgs) Handles Me.KeyPress
If e.KeyChar = Chr(Keys.Enter) Then
'Different code blocks will run here depending on what
'TextBox or Label is selected.

IDE :: NumericUpDown Control And The KeyPress Event?

Aug 9, 2009

As part of a program that I am composing, the user needs to enter a value by way of a NumericUpDown control on one particular form. Once this and other criteria have been evaluated, the program will then move to the next "step" of the program. If they use the spinner built into the NumericUpDown control, the event is fired on every change and that's all well and good, but if they double-click the value in the control then type the value in manually, it doesn't fire until the control no longer has focus. I can't depend that this might be the case however. Using the "KeyPress" event, I can in fact know when the control has focus and the user has typed but what I cannot seem to get it to do is to get the control to "read" these keystrokes as values until the control loses focus.

Keypress - How To Use KeyDown Event In Form

Mar 10, 2011

I'm using VB.NET (2008) and .NET framework 3.5. In my application I've got an on screen button that, when pressed, sends "00" as the characters [via SendKeys.Send("00")]. I also have a keyboard that has a '00' key that sends "00", two zeros, when pressed. I'm picking up the keypress using the form's KeyDown event - it fires twice, once for each "0" and works whether the on-screen or keyboard '00' is pressed. There's also a singe '0' on-screen button and key on the keyboard that sends "0".

I want to be able to treat the "00" as a single event. I.E. in the KeyDown handler, if the character is a single zero "0", I would like to check the next character to see if it is also a zero "0". If it is then I can handle it appropriately, but also need to remove it (from the keyboard buffer?) so that it doesn't fire the second KeyDown event. If it's not a zero then it should be left to fire the next event in the normal fashion.

Keypress Event - Displaying Images In Label

Mar 28, 2010

I need to display images when I press a key on the keyboard. I have a form with a textbox and a label on it. When I type a letter in the textbox it appears on the label. I got that part to work. But now I want to display a image in the label when I press a key on the keyboard. I have found some images on the internet that I want to display when I press a key on the keyboard. For example when I type the letter A in the textbox instead of A appearing I want an image of an apple to appear, or if I type the letter B a banana would appear, or if I type the letter D a dog would appear. I have been searching on how to this I came across the keyboard event such as the keypress event. Can I use a keypress event of the textbox to do this. Can I assign a certain image to a certain key on the keyboard, and have that image display whenever I press that key.

VS 2008 Datagridview Display With Keypress Event

May 6, 2010

I have a datagridview bound to an Access datatable. It is nothing more than a one column list of chemicals. To allow the user to more easily navigate the list, if they press a letter it will jump to the first chemical alphabetically of that letter. If they keep tapping that same letter it will move down that list one by one. This all works fine. The problem is if you hold down the letter it will progress down the list but it doesn't show that progression. I want it to function much like if you hold down the down arrow key in a datable you'll see each successive cell be selected as it goes down the column.
