Make a new project, draw a textbox on the form, let VB name it.

Paste-in this code.

----------------------
Option Explicit
Private Sub Text1_KeyDown(KeyCode As Integer, Shift As Integer)

    Select Case KeyCode
   
        Case vbKeyUp
            MsgBox "Up Arrow Was Pressed on Text1"
        Case vbKeyDown
            MsgBox "Down Arrow Was Pressed on Text1"
        Case vbKeyLeft
            MsgBox "Left Arrow Was Pressed on Text1"
        Case vbKeyRight
            MsgBox "Right Arrow Was Pressed on Text1"
    End Select
   
End Sub
