Function keys are not working in datagrid

Hello I am using Function Keys(F1, F2...) to open other forms in my Application. My current form has datagrid on it. When a cell in a datagrid got focus, Function keys are not working. I want to know How to make function keys work even when the cells are selected. Need solution in vb.net please. Thanks chen

You can catch function keys in a DataGrid by deriving the datagrid and overriding ProcessDialogKey. Public Class MyDataGrid Inherits DataGrid Protected Overrides Function ProcessDialogKey(ByVal keyData As System.Windows.Forms.Keys) As Boolean If keyData = Keys.F1 Then Console.WriteLine("ProcessDialogKey - F1") Return False ' don't process End If Return MyBase.ProcessDialogKey(keyData) End Function End Class
