Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

virtual bool IsInputChar(
	wchar_t charCode
) override


Type: System::Char

The character to test.

Return Value

Type: System::Boolean

true if the character should be sent directly to the item and not preprocessed; otherwise, false.

The IsInputChar method is called during window message preprocessing to determine whether the given input character should be preprocessed or sent directly to the ToolStrip. If the IsInputChar method returns true, the specified character is sent directly to the ToolStrip. However, if the method returns false, the character is preprocessed and only sent to the ToolStrip if it is not consumed by the preprocessing phase. The preprocessing of a character includes checking whether the character is a mnemonic of another control.
