You can set the KeyPreview Property of the form to true.

Then put code in the KeyDown event of your textbox, similar to:

Private Sub text0_KeyDown(KeyCode As Integer, Shift As Integer)

    if KeyCode = vbKeyF5 Then
        'put your code here

         'the reset the keycode
         KeyCode = 0
    endif

End Sub
