    Key Down Event

    I am trying to create a simple MessageBox as I hit the Down Arrow Key, below is my code(Windows Forms):

    private: System::Void Form1_KeyDown(System::Object^  sender, System::Windows::Forms::KeyEventArgs^  e) 
    				 MessageBox::Show("Error: There was an error in showing the previous error message","@_@");
    Nothing happens as I press the Down Arrow Key during runtime, Please help! Thanks

    if you use Opera and you'd like to have the tab-button functionality for the texteditor take a look at my Opera Tab-UserScirpt; and if you know how to stop firefox from jumping to the next control when you hit tab let me know
