Despite me working with C# (Windows Forms) for years, I'm having a brain fail moment, and can't for the life of me figure out how to catch a user typing Ctrl + C into a textbox.
My application is basically a terminal application, and I want Ctrl + C to send a
(byte)3 to a serial port, rather than be the shortcut for Copy to Clipboard.
I've set the shortcuts
enabled property to false on the textbox. Yet when the user hits Ctrl + C, the keypress event doesn't fire.
If I catch keydown, the event fires when the user presses Ctrl (that is, before they hit the C key).
It's probably something stupidly simple that I'm missing.
