keybd_event wont fire KeyDown event for VK_Return keycode on textbox?


I

ink

Hi all,

I am working with C# CF2 on windows mobile 5 phone edition on a Symbol MC70
device.

For some reason the KeyDown Event doesn't fire when you use the keybd_event
to send the VK_Return= 0x0D.

If I use the hard keyboard Return I get.
KeyDown
KeyPress
KeyUp
KeyUp


If I use the soft keyboard Return or keybd_event and VK_Return I get.
KeyPress
KeyUp


If I use any of the three above methods (Soft keyboard, Hard keyboard or
keybd_event) to input Numbers, letters or even Delete then I get.
KeyDown
KeyPress
KeyUp

Which is what I would have expected from all of these scenarios.

I have tried setting the Textbox allow returns property and it had no
effect.
I have also tried setting the form key preview property to see if that would
make any difference.


This is the only post I have been able to find that even resembles my
problem, it is for the desktyop and it is the richtextcontrol, but I don't
really understand what the resolution to the problem was.
http://www.thescripts.com/forum/thread249414.html


I really need to be able to send the VK_Return using keybd_event and have it
fire the Key Down event.

Any idea on how this can be done?

I have already tried moving my code that is running in the KeyDown to the
KeyUp but this has not been an acceptable solution to the problem as it
introduces to many bugs.

I have attached the code I have used for testing to the bottom of this post
I create all the controls dynamically so all that you need to do to test is
start a new single form project and past all this code over the top of your
form class code. The way to test is uncomment lines from the
textBox1_GotFocus event.


Thanks in advanced.

Try calling using these parameters

keybd_event(KeyCode, 0, KEYEVENTF_EXTENDEDKEY, 0);
keybd_event(KeyCode, 0, KEYEVENTF_KEYUP, 0);

Hi all,

I have come up with and explanation / solution to this problem. As I am
rather new to this sort of thing I have had to make some guesses as to how
things are working under the covers.

What seems to be happening when the Hard keyboard Enter key is hit it
outputs 2 KeyUp events, but looking closer they are not the same.
KeyDown: KeyValue = 134
KeyPress:
KeyUp: KeyValue = 13
KeyUp: KeyValue = 134

So my guess is that Symbol has had this problem with the Software keyboard
not firing the Key Down event and what they have done as a work around is
send the Keyboard down event for the 134 then the keyboard up event for the
13 and then the up event for 134.

So in order to mimic this behaviour I have change my code as follows:


public void PressKey(VirtualKeyCodes keyCode)
{
const int KEYEVENTF_EXTENDEDKEY = 0x1;
const int KEYEVENTF_KEYUP = 0x2;
const int KEYEVENTF_KEYDOWN = 0x0;

if (keyCode == VirtualKeyCodes.VK_RETURN)
{
keybd_event(134, 0x45, KEYEVENTF_KEYDOWN |
KEYEVENTF_EXTENDEDKEY, 0);
keybd_event(13, 0x45, KEYEVENTF_KEYDOWN |
KEYEVENTF_EXTENDEDKEY, 0);
keybd_event(13, 0x45, KEYEVENTF_EXTENDEDKEY |
KEYEVENTF_KEYUP, 0);
keybd_event(134, 0x45, KEYEVENTF_EXTENDEDKEY |
KEYEVENTF_KEYUP, 0);
}
else
{
byte KeyCode = (byte)keyCode;

keybd_event(KeyCode, 0x45, KEYEVENTF_KEYDOWN |
KEYEVENTF_EXTENDEDKEY, 0);
keybd_event(KeyCode, 0x45, KEYEVENTF_EXTENDEDKEY |
KEYEVENTF_KEYUP, 0);
}

}




This does not fix the SIP but it is a solution to my original problem.

If anyone can further shed some light on this, I would be very interested to
know why just sending a VK_Return buy itself does not do the job.

Thanks,
ink
