CheckBox Up/Down intercept

The CheckBox control captures Up and Down keypresses and
treats them as BackTab and Tab.  I want to capture Up and
Down keypresses myself, but they don't make it through
to a KeyDown event procedure.

Does anyone know if/how I can pursuade a checkbox to leave
Up & Down keypresses alone?
(I'm working with VB 5 pro)

Since windows itself is intercepting the arrow keys and setting
focus elsewhere the only way you can capture that is with a
msghook of some kind.. and not natively from VB.
However.. a really really bad workaround (and IM almost
ashamed to post it here) is:
1 make a variable public as integer (k)
2. in keydown set k=0 then k=keycode
3 on lostfocus..check to see what k=
if k=some num (use a select case) then it wasnt because
of arrow keys..
if k=0 THEN it MAY have been an arrow key.
