TabControl Problem: Ctrl+C Closes TabPage and Doesn't Copy Text To Clipboard

I'm having a problem with TabControls and using Ctrl+C to copy.  My TabPages contain TextBoxes and I want users to be able to copy and paste to and from each of those textboxes.  Unfortunately, when I press Ctrl+C it closes the current tab and doesn't copy anything to the clipboard. Any ideas how to prevent ctrl+c from closing a TabPage?

Hi TaylorPhillips,

Can you give us some more information about your setup?  I'm not seeing this problem with VB.Net 2005 Express.

Do you have any third party controls?

Do you have any code in any of the KeyXXX events or are you trapping keys in any other way?

Try making a new project with JUST a TabControl and some TextBoxes on the TabPages.  Does the problem persist?  This can help us narrow down the problem in your original app.

I sadly inform you that I had a context menu strip with hotkeys enabled.  As I'm sure you can guess, one of those was ctrl+c which closed the current tab ;(....  I never realized that CMS hotkeys worked while the menu was not visible.  Thanks!
