Do you know if there is any way that I can intercept keystrokes on an MDI form?
I can do this with a 'standard' from by setting the KeyPreview Property to True and trapping the keystroke with the KeyPress Event.

Thanks in advance,
David.

Private Sub MDIForm_Load
    Dim NewForm As New Form1
    NewForm.Show
End Sub

In Form1 set .KeyPreview to True and write your key trapping code. This way the MDIForm.ActiveForm should get the focus.
*maybe*
