How do I disable the arrow keys

ssddaassddaa Member Posts: 1
I am using the keydown function to control some stepper motors with the arrow keys in vb6. My problem is that as I use the arrow keys they also automatically cycle through the buttons like the tab button does. I have set the tab stop to false so tab no longer works on the buttons however, the arrow keys still work. How do I disable or override the automatic functionality of these keys so that they will only function for my stepper motors?

Thanks

    The "KeyPreview"-Property and the KeyCodes "vbKeyLeft", "vbKeyUp", "vbKeyDown" and "vbKeyRight" are your friends......
