// The following code shows how to subclass the edit control and list box
// controls inside a combo box. It uses WM_CTLCOLOR for subclassing.
// CSuperComboBox represents the combo box.
HBRUSH CSuperComboBox::OnCtlColor(CDC* pDC, CWnd* pWnd, UINT nCtlColor)
{
   if (nCtlColor == CTLCOLOR_EDIT)
   {
      //Edit control
      if (m_edit.GetSafeHwnd() == NULL)
         m_edit.SubclassWindow(pWnd->GetSafeHwnd());
   }
   else if (nCtlColor == CTLCOLOR_LISTBOX)
   {
      //ListBox control
      if (m_listbox.GetSafeHwnd() == NULL)
         m_listbox.SubclassWindow(pWnd->GetSafeHwnd());
   }
   HBRUSH hbr = CComboBox::OnCtlColor(pDC, pWnd, nCtlColor);
   return hbr;
}

derive a class from CEdit.
declare the object of CEdit derived class in the dialog class.
subclass as per the above code

In ur derived class map the onKey down , syskey down etc,

from there u can check the key strokes
