Help with trapping a keystroke from an edit control

I am trying to test for when the user presses the ENTER key while they are typing in an Edit control that is residing on a regular client window. I can easily trap the WM_KEYDOWN while typing in the client window, but I can't seem to trap the WM_KEYDOWN while typing in the edit window. I'd appreciate the assistance thanks.

Thanks!

    Either trap it in the message loop - this is how IsDialogMessage works - or subclass the edit box control using Get/SetWindowLong.
