format text by Keys - 2003

Hi Experts,

I wish to write a word processing application which will format text if a specific key is pressed. The document will be RTF based.

Example: If 'CTRL' and letter 'C' is pressed, then left margin to 4.1" ...and if ENTER key is pressed = vbCrLf down to next line & to normal left Margin  2.7"

Is this easy? as I have played around with text boxes and not really got anywhere.

Do you know about these actions with the RichTextBox?

            rtb.SelectionAlignment = HorizontalAlignment.Center
            rtb.SelectionHangingIndent = 200
            rtb.SelectionIndent = 100

Thanks Bob,

I completed my code with:
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.Control Keys.C
          RichTextBox1.SelectionAlignment = HorizontalAlignment.Center
            RichTextBox1.SelectionHangingIndent = 200
            RichTextBox1.SelectionIndent = 100
        End Select
    End Function
