Hi I am working on a VB.NET application.

My main form, has a number of controls on it, and at run-time creates an additional number of buttons. I want to be able to trap when the ESC key is being pressed, whatever the current focus on the form is.

I have tried mybase.keydown and a number of other options, all to no avail.

Therefore my question is, how do I trap for the ESC key, whatever the focus on the current form ?

Many thanks in advance
