hi there.

i have an MFC dialog-based application. let's assume that the dialog only has two buttons, Okay and Cancel. when you hit a key, and one of the buttons is focused, windows beeps. i want to stop this behavior -- stop the beep.

i've tried intercepting the OnChar message and the onKeyDown message. no luck.

this would seem to be a simple issue, but i can't find a solution for it.
