Why doesn't Keys.Left work???

Hi guys, ive got a bit of a strange one, If i use the code :


Dim x As Integer
    Dim y As Integer

    Private Sub Form1_KeyDown(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.KeyPressEventArgs) Handles Me.KeyPress
        x = x + 10
        y = x + 5

        If Keys.Enter Then
            PictureBox1.Location = New Point(x, y)
        End If


IT WORKS FINE, but when i use

Keys.Left, Keys.Right ... up or down for the arrow keys then it doesnt work?? THis is really strange, could someone please try and help me, thanks very much

Try...

    Protected Overrides Function ProcessCmdKey(ByRef msg As System.Windows.Forms.Message, ByVal keyData As System.Windows.Forms.Keys) As Boolean
        Select Case keyData
            Case Keys.Left
                PictureBox1.Left = PictureBox1.Left - 10

            Case Keys.Right
                PictureBox1.Left = PictureBox1.Left + 10

            Case Keys.Up
                PictureBox1.Top = PictureBox1.Top - 10

            Case Keys.Down
                PictureBox1.Top = PictureBox1.Top + 10

            Case Keys.PageUp
                PictureBox1.Top = PictureBox1.Top - 25

            Case Keys.PageDown
                PictureBox1.Top = PictureBox1.Top + 25

            Case Keys.Enter
                MsgBox("enter pressed")

        End Select

        Return MyBase.ProcessCmdKey(msg, keyData)
    End Function
