Why does delete key not work in text box on MDI child form?

In the text boxes of my MDI child forms, the delete key seems to be "dead." It's not deleting characters or firing KeyDown events. However, if I set the MDIChild property on the form to false, the delete key starts working. How can I get the delete key to work when MDIChild is set to true? Thanks!!!

I'd suggest that you look at your KeyDown/KeyPress event code.

Make sure that you have now set the keycode or keyascii = 0 , some where in the code.

Please review your code.

Also check the KeyPreview property of both the form and the MDI form and make sure they're False.
