TabControlExt Hot Keys in MDI Application

Just in case someone else runs into this problem, there is a bug in the framework which cases Hot keys to work incorrectly in MDI Child forms. You get strange behavior where hot keys entered on one from activate controls on other forms that are not activated. You can work around this bug by adding the following procedure to your MDI Child forms which use hot keys. Protected Overrides Function ProcessDialogChar(ByVal charCode As Char) As Boolean If charCode <> " "c And ProcessMnemonic(charCode) Then Return True End If Return False ' Nmemonic is unhandled, Do not call base to bubble up to MDI container End Function 'ProcessDialogChar

Hi Don, Thanks for the information. Would also add that this behaviour is seen while using Visual Studio 2003. Thanks Arun
