Using Essential Suite I've set KeyPreview on the form that contains a GridDataBoundGrid to true and I'm kind of surprised that my override of ProcessDialogKey is not called when the grid is the active control. What am I doing wrong here? My goal is to be notified when Enter is pressed so that I can open another form to edit the current row. Thanks, Sean

You can catch the keys in ProcessKeyPreview. You would want to check for the enter key and for the m.Msg value as this can possibly be hit multiple times (KeyDown, KeyPress, KeyUp).
protected override bool ProcessKeyPreview(ref Message m)
	bool enter = (((Keys)m.WParam.ToInt32()) & Keys.Enter) == Keys.Enter;
	return base.ProcessKeyPreview(ref m);
If you add a Windows Forms DataGrid to your form, you will also see that ProcessDialogKey is not hit for that control either. I think the reason is that the it is really the embedded controls like TextBoxes that have the input focus at this point.

Try also setting grid.WantEnterKey = false; Stefan
