TabStop Problem

I'm using the following code to allow the arrow keys (right, left) to act as tab / shift+tab:

Protected Overrides Function ProcessKeyPreview(ByRef m As System.Windows.Forms.Message) As Boolean
        Const WM_KEYDOWN As Integer = &H100
        If m.Msg = WM_KEYDOWN Then
            Select Case m.WParam.ToInt32
                Case Keys.Right, Keys.Left
                    Me.SelectNextControl(Me.ActiveControl, (m.WParam.ToInt32 = Keys.Right), True, True, True)
                    Return True
            End Select
        End If
    End Function

The problem is the focus moves from a button (either forward or backward) to the next tab index although that control's TabStop property is set to False. The problem does not occur when the focus moves from textbox to textbox or button to button. The tabStopOnly As Boolean condition is set to True.

Any ideas on how to correct the problem?

I use the SENDKEYS [tab] and candel the current keystroke. Then VB takes over as if I types a tab

Thanks for your response. I had already used the SendKey.Send as a work around the problem. I was just hoping someone could explain why the "tabStopOnly condition was not working...
