Killing Application With Escape Key in .NET C#
So, you are a C# weenie and you want to kill your Forms Application by hitting the escape key. It's as easy as pie.
In the forms load method, put in the following two lines:
this.KeyPreview = true;
this.KeyDown += new KeyEventHandler(Form1_KeyDown);
Then create the KeyDown method:
private void Form1_KeyDown(object sender, KeyEventArgs e)
if (e.KeyCode == Keys.Escape)
Hope this helps.
