In Delphi3 I can use the keyboard arrow keys up and down by calling the events "OnKeyDown" or "OnKeyUp" or I can use "OnKeyPressed" with ASCII codes like #13 etc. I do not find a way to use the keyboard left and right arrow keys to control parameters; it seems that in Delhi these keys are not recognized. Can anyone give me a hint?

Hi,

In the KeyUp or KeyDown method of the object you interested try the following code fragment:
...
  case Key of
  VK_LEFT : Caption := 'Left';
  VK_UP : Caption := 'Up';
  VK_RIGHT : Caption := 'Right';
  VK_DOWN : Caption := 'Down';
  end;
...
Regards,
Igor
