Hi!

I'm showing winforms in my VFP app but with some issues, like not getting the right KeyStrokes TAB, ENTER, ESC, etc.

In this article it shows how to do it with VB.Net, and i cannot write it in C#, or use it from VFP with wwdotNetBridge,

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/desktop/winforms/advanced/how-to-support-com-interop-by-displaying-each-windows-form-on-its-own-thread?view=netframeworkdesktop-4.8

Any Help?

Windows Forms is problematic because they expect their own Windows event loop. If you're not displaying Modal Dialogs and pass in the VFP parent Window handle there will be problems with event processing and focus.

Not recommended honestly unless you use .ShowDialog().
