I have a form with a listview in VB.NET, the ListView is focused and the form property KeyPreview is set to true. No matter what, the Enter key is never recognized in the listviews KeyDown event. How to fix that?
Private Sub lvListView_KeyDown(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.KeyEventArgs) Handles lvListView.click
      
        If e.KeyCode = Keys.Enter Then
 
            Debug.Print("ENTER!!!")  'Never happens
 
        End If
        
    End Sub

I've figured it out. The form had AcceptButton set to a button that was not doing anything yet. Confused me :) Thanks for your help.
