Post subject:  Arrow Keys being intercepted [Solved]

I have a window with a Listbox and a Canvas (actually 3 listboxes)

In the KEYDOWN event for the WINDOW... I am trying to detect arrow keys

Everything works fine for Left/Right arrows, with or without Alt/Cmd/Option etc keys

But Up/Down arrows are ALWAYS intercepted by the listbox, regardless of what I try and do

Is there an easy way to intercept the keys BEFORE the listbox (which is why I put it in the WINDOW keydown)?

Not real keen on my solution... but it seems to work.

In the Keydown and Cellkeydown events of all the listboxes.... and the Keydown Event of the Window itself... I made a call to an external key handler..... this way no matter who gets the key event, ONE place handles it
