Describes a standard numeric ANSI key code.
The KeyPress event occurs when an ANSI key is pressed or released.
The KeyPress event is generated when the user presses a key while the tree control has the input focus. The KeyPress event is not generated during cell editing.
Use KeyDown and KeyUp events to handle any keystroke not recognized by KeyPress, such as function keys, editing keys, navigation keys, and any combination of these with keyboard modifiers, such as SHIFT, CONTROL and ALT keys. Unlike the KeyDown and KeyUp events, KeyPress doesn't indicate the physical state of the keyboard; it passes a character instead.
The key typed by the user can be suppressed by setting KeyAscii to 0. It can be modified by assigning a new value to the KeyAscii variable.
