How do you catch the WM_KEYDOWN even in a CDialog.  I used class wizard and added the message map between WM_KEYDOWN and a function in my CDialog class.  The problem is that it simply does not execute. I can catch other messages like
WM_RBUTTONDOWN, but not WM_KEYDOWN.

The only time I can get the WM_KEYDOWN handler to execute is if is handled by the CView class.

There's got to be a way to catch a process keystrokes that
are entered when a CDialog has the keyboard focus.

Any ideas?

Check the MSJ issues a couple of months ago (say from March 96). There was an article explaining how to do keystrokes for CDialogs. Maybe that can help you. If you have trouble search contact me I will look into my archives.
