Catch KeyPress only once.

Hi,

I'm creating a multitabbed webbrowser, and want to get better control, when tabbing through the tabs.
For that i have created a Sub to catch the Control + Tab keyboard event, but it seems that I'm catching the keypresses continuously, instead of once.

The code looks like this:

Private Sub Browser_PreviewKeyDown(sender As Object, e As System.Windows.Forms.PreviewKeyDownEventArgs)
        If (e.KeyCode = Keys.Tab AndAlso e.Modifiers = Keys.Control) Then
            ' Control + Tab pressed
            Dim tnt = ActiveTabPage
            tnt = tnt + 1
            If tnt = 10 Then tnt = 0
            TabControl1.SelectedIndex = tnt
        End If
End Sub

I would expect that I will need to catch the keyup event as well, but I haven't been succesfull in implementing it with the code above.

Suggestions would be very much appreciated.

Did you try using the PreviewKeyUp instead?

I tried, But it seems not to be implementet:

'PreviewKeyUp' is not an event of 'System.Windows.Forms.WebBrowser'.

In that case, you would need to do some timing yourself. If the current key is same as previous and is pressed within a given time period (such as 500ms) then ignore it.

Thanks, that did the trick :-)

Private Sub Browser_PreviewKeyDown(sender As Object, e As System.Windows.Forms.PreviewKeyDownEventArgs)
Dim ntmr As Date = Now
        Dim tmrdiff As TimeSpan = ntmr - Me.tmr
        If tmrdiff.Milliseconds < 100 Then Return
        If (e.KeyCode = Keys.Tab AndAlso e.Modifiers = Keys.Control) Then
            ' Control + Tab pressed
            Dim tnt = ActiveTabPage
            tnt = tnt + 1
            If tnt = 10 Then tnt = 0
            TabControl1.SelectedIndex = tnt
        End If
Me.tmr = Now
End Sub
