This event supports the .NET Framework infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code.

The KeyPress event is not supported by the AxHost class.

In JScript, you can handle the events defined by a class, but you cannot define your own.
Not applicable.

If you attempt to add or remove a handler for the KeyPress event, a NotSupportedException is thrown. The events derived from the Control class are not supported by the AxHost class. The events exposed by the ActiveX control when the AxHost wrapper is created are the events that should be used.
