How to control a key pression when the focus is in any control on the form?

Hi...

I have a form with some stringrid controls, some scrollbars, a status bar and a lot of text edit control. I need the program perform an action when a key is pressed (actually, the key is F7) wherever the focus is. When the application is started, one of the text edit controls has the focus and if I define the key press event for the form, the function isn't executed when I press F7 when a focus is in the control.

How can I do it?
Thanks in advance

You should set form's keypreview property to true, then the form should receive the key press befor any control can receive it.
