I am using VB.NET 2005 version.In my Main Form I have Buttons like Close,Find,Add,Delete etc.Instead of using buttons in each form,i call these buttons. and they are working properly.

My Question is when  I click (Ctrl+F) I want to display find form,
 How i do that.

The find will work when i will click the find button,properly.I just want it will work also when i will click (Ctrl+F) .Any button property of find? or any other method

I'm not clear what you want. Are you saying that you want to call the button click routines in your main form from a sub form, when certain keystroke combinations are pressed?

Sir,

In My main Form I have a Button 'btnFind'.If I Click that btnFind, it will call a function Find().

I also want when I use (Ctrl+F),it must call the function Find().

Actually, it looks like KeyDown is the event you want to subscribe to, not keypress. As in:

[code]
        void Form1_KeyDown(object sender, KeyEventArgs e)
        {
            Console.WriteLine("Control is {0} and KeyValue is {1}", e.Control, e.KeyCode);
            if (e.Control  && e.KeyCode.Equals(Keys.F))
            {
                DoFStuff();
                e.Handled = true;
            }
        }

[/code]

David

Then, when you create a subform:

            Form subForm = new SubForm1();
            subForm.KeyDown += Form1_KeyDown;
            subForm.Show(); // or subForm.ShowDialog()

It is pretty much the same in VB. Here is what I came up with:

Public Class Form1

    Private Sub Form1_KeyDown(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.KeyEventArgs)
        Console.WriteLine("Control is {0} and KeyValue is {1}", e.Control, e.KeyCode)
        If e.Control AndAlso e.KeyCode.Equals(Keys.F) Then
            DoCtlFStuff()
            e.SuppressKeyPress = True
            e.Handled = True
        End If
    End Sub

    Private Sub DoCtlFStuff()
        MessageBox.Show("CtlFStuff")
    End Sub

    Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        Me.KeyPreview = True
        AddHandler Me.KeyDown, AddressOf Form1_KeyDown
    End Sub


    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Dim subForm As Form = New SubForm1()
        AddHandler subForm.KeyDown, AddressOf Form1_KeyDown
        subForm.Show() ' or subForm.ShowDialog()
    End Sub
End Class


Ciao!
