I have a aplication deveveloped with vb6.0,
I use sendkeys in keypress event.
E.g.
Private Sub Text1_KeyPress(KeyAscii As Integer)
    If KeyAscii = 13 Then
        SendKeys "{TAB}"
        KeyAscii = 0
    End If
End Sub

but when I use the aplication in Windows2000 pro, my keyboard is lock it.

How Can i solve this problem?

Hi!

Have you tried using the keydown() event?

That's it!

Give a try to:

   If KeyAscii = 13 Then
       KeyAscii = vbKeyTab
   End If

Cheers
