KeyPress Event and KeyStrokes

the following code segment demonstrate how to detect keystroke, specifically ENTER key in a textbox keypress event.

private void textBox1_KeyPress(object sender, KeyPressEventArgs e)
   if (e.KeyChar == (char)13)
   MessageBox.Show("You pressed the ENTER key.");

to identify decimal equivalent of each keys, try this code:

private void textBox1_KeyPress(object sender, KeyPressEventArgs e)
   int x= (int)e.KeyChar;

***happy coding***

How to Dispose a Form in C# Without Closing the Application

in program.cs file replace the following code

      Application.Run(new Form1());

with, an instance of your start-up form, such as

   Form1 frm1 = new Form1();
*** now you can dispose the form without closing the application

from time to time, you will be needing these codes:

   Application.Exit(); <- to close the whole application

   frm1.Close(); <- to close your current form window
   frm1.Dispose(); <- to free memory resources, when form is shown modally. ^_^
***good luck***
