Use the KeyDown event of the control to capture the keys when they are pressed. The KeyDown event occurs before the KeyPress event. Here is an example of code to place in the KeyDown Event of the control:

Private Sub textBox1_KeyDown(sender As Object, e As System.Windows.Forms.KeyEventArgs) _  
   If (e.KeyCode = Keys.Enter) Then
   End If
End Sub 'textBox1_KeyDown
