I'm converting an old app to VB.Net and have many dialog boxes.  How do you enable the ESC key to close a dialog box?

you can also handle the keydown event to capture

    Private Sub Form1_KeyDown(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.KeyEventArgs) Handles Me.KeyDown

        If e.KeyCode = Keys.Escape Then Me.Close()
    End Sub

Open in new window

I was unable to get the Subroutine to work (it appears sometimes my DataGridView captures the keypresses), but the AcceptButton/CancelButton solved my problem.  Thanks so much!!
