URGENT!  VB.NET  DatagridView.KeyUp event not working properly

Oracle Forms allows a user to execute a search or run a query when a user finishes typing a value in a column in a grid.  The user can press F8 on the keyboard to initiate the search based on the DataGrid's current column value.

I tried to use the DataGridView.KeyUp event to mimic the same function but the event does activate at the right time.  In fact, I have to click out of the column then click once, then hit F8.

Here is a snippet of the code I used

Select Case e.Keycode
      Case Keys.F8
             MyTableAdapter.Fill(Me.DataSet1.Table1, CurrentColumnValue)
End Select

After I type the last letter in the column and press F8, nothing happens-- but if I move to the next column and then click back on the original column, F8 works.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks

Check out http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en/winformsdatacontrols/thread/db486d50-48f3-405d-bc7a-ad3720d4dd57 There are both C# and VB solutions, though the solution from tbar68 (close to the bottom of the page) looks rather simple. You'd have to modify it a bit to catch the F8 key and the delete key.

Hi

I have used this code to cap keys anywhere in form
  Protected Overrides Function ProcessCmdKey(ByRef msg As System.Windows.Forms.Message, ByVal keyData As System.Windows.Forms.Keys) As Boolean
        Select Case keyData
            Case Keys.F2
                MsgBox("f2")
            Case Keys.F3
                MsgBox("f3")
            Case Keys.Escape
                MsgBox("esc")
            Case Else
                Return MyBase.ProcessCmdKey(msg, keyData)
        End Select
        Return True
    End Function
