I have created a modeless dialog box which is "in focus" when my application starts.  I need to detect the F1 key, but it is not tied to any menu selection or dialog control.  I have tried OnKeyDown, but that function does not seem to get called when I press the F1 key (or any other key).  Is there a trick to OnKeyDown?  How do you detect key presses when dialog boxes are displayed?
