Example

[Visual Basic] 
' This example demonstrates how to use the KeyDown event with the Help class to display
' pop-up style help to the user of the application. The example filters for all variations
' of pressing the F1 key with a modifier key by using the KeyEventArgs properties passed
' to the event handling method. 
' When the user presses any variation of F1 that includes any keyboard modifier, the Help
' class displays a pop-up window, similar to a ToolTip, near the control. If the user presses 
' ALT + F2, a different Help pop-up is displayed with additional information. This example assumes
' that a TextBox control, named textBox1, has been added to the form and its KeyDown
' event has been contected to this event handling method.
Private Sub textBox1_KeyDown(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.KeyEventArgs) Handles textBox1.KeyDown
    ' Determine whether the key entered is the F1 key. If it is, display Help.
    If e.KeyCode = Keys.F1 AndAlso (e.Alt OrElse e.Control OrElse e.Shift) Then
        ' Display a pop-up Help topic to assist the user.
