    keyboard handler

    I want my Form to handle keyboard strokes. I search the msdn and found the method to do so, but the examples they have are for a textBox. Like textBox1_KeyPressed(...). I want to be able to handle the keyboard as long as the Form is active. How can I do this?

    It should be the same thing for a Form. In fact I am sure of it.

    Ok, next question. Can I create a grid of images? I want to make a board, each space will have an image which of course would be able to change? Can this be done in a convinient way so I can access the images with some kind of indexes?
    I could create a 2D array of Images and place them on the Form, but this would take some time placing and alligning them, so if there was a grid to do this for me...

    Yeah. There is an object for this... Its ImageSet or something to that effect. Just google it or wait for someone more up on their C# to reply... I think this is Magos' chance to shine.

    I started having a nagging feeling that wasn't the right name of the class. And I do obsess about giving people misinformation like that.

    You want a ImageCollection. Enjoy.
