How to detect when Control-F is pressed on Windows form

I have a .Net 4 Windows Forms project created with Visual Studio 2010 using c#.

I need to know when Ctrl-F is pressed whenever the form or any of this forms controls has focus.  How can I do this?

Jacques Bourgeois (James Burger)Commented:
Set the form KeyPreview property to True. All keys activity will be sent to the form Key events before going to the controls.

You can then detect Ctrl-F in the KeyDown or KeyUp event of the form by checking e.Control and e.KeyCode.
