I have a richtextbox control on a form.  If a user presses enter on the richtextbox I want to send a shift+enter instead.  Problem with my code is it goes into an infinate loop.
Private Sub txtNotes_KeyDown(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.KeyEventArgs) Handles txtNotes.KeyDown
        If e.KeyCode = Keys.Enter Then
            e.Handled = True
            SendKeys.Send("+ENTER")
        End If
    End Sub
