Ctrl-Shift-Space in the KeyTyping event

SyntaxEditor for Windows Forms Forum

Posted 16 years ago by Russell Mason

I can't seem to pick up Ctrl-Shift-Space in the KeyTyping event. I can pick up the Control and Shift keys but e.KeyChar always seems to be 0. Ctrl-Space and Shift-Space on their own are OK.

Any suggestions?

Hi Russell,

If you go to the sample app and uncomment the KeyTyping line that prints to the Events window, you see this print when you press Ctrl+Shift+Space:

KeyTyping: KeyTypingEventArgs{KeyData=Space, Shift, Control;KeyChar=(None);Overwrite=False}

Note that Space is in the KeyData. We call a Windows API function to determine if the key press is a hotkey or a regular key so in this case it is telling us that Ctrl+Shift+Space is a hotkey. Therefore all the data is in the KeyData property.
