EnableKeyboard Property


Gets or sets a value indicating whether the control automatically processes the keyboard.


public bool EnableKeyboard { get; set; } 
property bool EnableKeyboard { 
   bool get(); 
   void set (    bool ); 
   property bool EnableKeyboard 
      bool get() 
      void set(bool value) 

Property Value

true if the control automatically processes the keyboard; otherwise, false. Default value is true.


When automatic keyboard processing is enabled, the RasterImageList Control will process the following keys:

Key Event
PageUp, Up Arrow, Left Arrow Scroll up/left one item (depends on ScrollStyle)
PageDown, Down Arrow, Right Arrow Scroll down/right one item (depends on ScrollStyle)
Ctrl + PageUp, Ctrl + Up, Ctlr + Left, Home Scroll to beginning of list (depends on ScrollStyle)
Ctrl + PageDown, Ctrl + Down, Ctlr + Right, End Scroll to end of list (depends on ScrollStyle)

If the setting for SelectionMode is not RasterImageListSelectionMode.None, then the selected item will move up, down, left, or right, depending on the key(s) being processed. If SelectionMode is set to RasterImageListSelectionMode.Multi, multiple items can be selected using the CTRL and/or SHIFT keys in conjunction with the keys listed above.
