the soft keyboard is there to write in an object for example a textbox,combobox e.g so youll have to use the events in the objects to capture the keypresses

Also the question in english is:


Hello,

As I detect that key has been pressed in the virtual keyboard of pocket PC,

The events Form_KeyPress or KeyUP or KeyDown are not detected when pressing the keys in the virtual keyboard,

or as I detect the events of writing in the form come is that this writing in a Formurio or a Textbox,


if they need that it explains a little to me but they do not doubt in warning to me,

they can respond in ingles,

Greetings and thanks

You dont need keypreview the form does not pick up Messages from the SIP but it does get clicks

try adding the code  msgbox "hi" in Form_Keypress  and then click the form youll see it triggers the event the sip just send messages to input controls
