No Space-Char after pressing shortcuts “CTRL” + “SPACE”

We are using EditControl to write a small code-editor. We want to popup the auto-complete window after pressing the shortcut CTRL + SPACE without typing the space-char into the EditorWindow.

Is there any way to disable typing characters into the EditControl?

Private Sub editControl1_KeyDown(sender As Object, e As KeyEventArgs)
    If e.Control Then
    ' Do something here
        If e.KeyCode = Keys.Space Then
            Dim context = EditControl1.ContextChoiceController
            For Each item As IConfigLexem In lexeme
                context.Items.Add((item).BeginBlock, CStr(m_MethodComments(item.ID)), Me.EditControl1.ContextChoiceController.Images("Image" & item.FormatName))
        End If
    End If
End Sub
