Disable hotkeys.

I have a CEdit control in a toolbar that i want to write
into, the problem is that i have the 1-5 keys at hotkeys for some functions.

My question is if there is any good way to disable this hotkeys when im writing the text in the control?

In your derived CEdit class, say CMyEdit, add an handler for PreTranslateMessage ...

From Class Wizard derive a new class (say CMyEdit) from CEdit.
Add the following handler

BOOL CMyEdit::PreTranslateMessage(MSG* pMsg)
{
  if ((pMsg->message == WM_KEYDOWN)
{
     if ( (pMsg->wParam >=  VK_NUMPAD1) &&  (pMsg->wParam <=  VK_NUMPAD5))
      return TRUE;

// Above was for Number Pad keys
// If you need this for 1-5 top panel keys check for range 1 to 5.
// If function keys check for VK_F1 to VK_F5
// U should return TRUE if it falls in range.
 }
  return CEdit::PreTranslateMessage(pMsg);
}
