I'd like to catch the hit key in a vbform composed by several text boxes, combo boxes wherever the focus is.

For example: there is a text box to show a code and there is a text box to show the name of the product. If want my user to press insert to open a new form for adding a product wherever the focus is set (the T_code or the T_Libelle).
