ToolStripControlHost.KeyDown ToolStripControlHost.KeyDown ToolStripControlHost.KeyDown ToolStripControlHost.KeyDown Event

Definition

Occurs when a key is pressed and held down while the hosted control has focus.

public:
 event System::Windows::Forms::KeyEventHandler ^ KeyDown;
public event System.Windows.Forms.KeyEventHandler KeyDown;
member this.KeyDown : System.Windows.Forms.KeyEventHandler 
Public Custom Event KeyDown As KeyEventHandler 

Examples

The following code example demonstrates the use of this member. In the example, an event handler reports on the occurrence of the KeyDown event. This report helps you to learn when the event occurs and can assist you in debugging. To report on multiple events or on events that occur frequently, consider replacing MessageBox.Show with Console.WriteLine or appending the message to a multiline TextBox.

To run the example code, paste it into a project that contains an instance of type ToolStripControlHost named ToolStripControlHost1. Then ensure that the event handler is associated with the KeyDown event.

private void ToolStripControlHost1_KeyDown(Object sender, KeyEventArgs e) {

System.Text.StringBuilder messageBoxCS = new System.Text.StringBuilder();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Alt", e.Alt );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Control", e.Control );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Handled", e.Handled );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "KeyCode", e.KeyCode );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "KeyValue", e.KeyValue );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "KeyData", e.KeyData );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Modifiers", e.Modifiers );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Shift", e.Shift );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "SuppressKeyPress", e.SuppressKeyPress );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
MessageBox.Show(messageBoxCS.ToString(), "KeyDown Event" );
}
Private Sub ToolStripControlHost1_KeyDown(sender as Object, e as KeyEventArgs) _ 
     Handles ToolStripControlHost1.KeyDown

    Dim messageBoxVB as New System.Text.StringBuilder()
    messageBoxVB.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Alt", e.Alt)
    messageBoxVB.AppendLine()
    messageBoxVB.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Control", e.Control)
    messageBoxVB.AppendLine()
    messageBoxVB.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Handled", e.Handled)
    messageBoxVB.AppendLine()
    messageBoxVB.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "KeyCode", e.KeyCode)
    messageBoxVB.AppendLine()
    messageBoxVB.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "KeyValue", e.KeyValue)
    messageBoxVB.AppendLine()
    messageBoxVB.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "KeyData", e.KeyData)
    messageBoxVB.AppendLine()
    messageBoxVB.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Modifiers", e.Modifiers)
    messageBoxVB.AppendLine()
    messageBoxVB.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Shift", e.Shift)
    messageBoxVB.AppendLine()
    messageBoxVB.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "SuppressKeyPress", e.SuppressKeyPress)
    messageBoxVB.AppendLine()
    MessageBox.Show(messageBoxVB.ToString(),"KeyDown Event")

End Sub
