Capture KeyPress from ToolWindow

Docking/MDI for Windows Forms Forum

I have a ToolWindow with a control. The Control is docked inside the Toolwindow with DockStyle.Fill. I implemented the ToolWindow_KeyPress event. However even when the ToolWindow has focus if I press a key on the keyboard, the event handler does not get invoked.

How do I capture the KeyPress event for a toolwindow?

I don't believe we have anything that would intercept KeyPress events in our code. Remember that KeyPress won't catch keys like ctrl+something. You need KeyDown for those.

If you think there is a problem, then please build a simple sample project that shows it and email that over. But again, I don't think there's anything in our code that would do this.
