hi -- i'm using vs2010 and .net 4
i have a user control, where the focus is frequently in a one of several possible numerical updown controls on the user control. i want to trap a left or right arror to shift focus to the next numerical control. do i have to add event handlers for each numeric control? also, i want to trap on a tab key. a tab press currently shift focus to the next control as identified on the tab index, but i need to add some logic on that move. what event do i use to capture the tab press?
thanks,

you can use keydown in Form, you must active keypreview in properties.

private void Form_KeyDown(object sender, KeyEventArgs e)
{
                if (e.KeyCode == Keys.Enter)
                {
                    SendKeys.Send("{TAB}");
                }
               //for arrows
               //e.KeyCode == Keys.Left
               //e.KeyCode == Keys.Right
              //to check activecontrol use  this.ActiveControl
               
}
