I have a form with 2 TabPages and I want to be able to press the F keys.  However, when I try and push F9 for example, the Handles MyBase.KeyDown is never reached.

What's going on?

Thanks in advance!

Best Regards,
Private Sub Form1_KeyDown(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.KeyEventArgs) Handles MyBase.KeyDown
        'When the function keys are pressed, FuncKeysModule is called.
        If e.KeyValue = Keys.F1 Or Keys.F2 Or Keys.F3 Or Keys.F4 Or Keys.F5 Or Keys.F6 Or Keys.F7 Or Keys.F8 Or Keys.F9 Or Keys.F10 Or Keys.F11 Or Keys.F12 Then
            e.Handled = True
        End If
    End Sub
