I am using the Borland C++ 4.5 compiler with ObjectWindows.
I have created a Window with the class TFrameWindow, with
a number if buttons (TButton class) and edit fields (TEdit class). I want to create an event handler that will be
run every time the users presses the escape key. This
event handler should be run even if a button or a edit
field has got the focus. I have tried using an event
handler for the EV_WM_KEYDOWN message for the TFrameWindow, but this seems to be working only when none of the controls have got the focus.

Override the PreprocessMsg function in your window class - it receives input messages before any child windows so you can catch the WM_KEYDOWN there.

Hope this will help.
