using enter key to tab to numericupdown controls causes error sound

I have a form that has a bunch of numericupdown controls. I would like the user to be able to use the enter key to tab to each control. However whenever the user does this the computer beeps an error sound.

I have looked at other posts and the only thing I could find is references to a textbox instead of a numericupdown control. They suggests that I use the e.Handled = True in the keypress event to get rid of that. However this does not work. Do I have to do something different with a numericupdown control?

Here is a copy of the code that I am using.

Private Sub UpDown9am_KeyPress(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As KeyPressEventArgs) Handles UpDown9am.KeyPress
If e.KeyChar = ChrW(Keys.Return) Then
e.Handled = True
End If
End Sub

I am using vb.net in visual studio 2005 on an XP machine.

Hi Ben,

It's working fine when I use SendKeys.SendWait() methos instead of SendKeys.Send() method. Here is the code snippet,

Private Sub NumericUpDown1_KeyPress(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.KeyPressEventArgs) Handles NumericUpDown1.KeyPress
If e.KeyChar = ChrW(Keys.Return) Then
e.Handled = True
End If
End Sub

Please let me know if its working for you.

Good Luck
