How to use backspace key in custom tab?

I want to be able to create a custom tab add-in in the PDM command accelerator and be able to use the backspace key in a text box like a custom notes field on the user control.

I’ve tried but if I use a text box or other input entry on the control. The problem is that instead of backing the cursor up, the entire PDM window goes back to the last folder I navigated to, similar to the backspace key did in internet explorer, it navigates back a page.

@Laslow99 : I’m assuming your usercontrol is Winforms one.

Have you tried using a WPF usercontrol inside a Winforms elmenthost? That might actually work.

If you can upload minimal viable example (MVE), I might be able to reproduce the issue on my end and attempt to fix. Push your code to GitHub or paste it here.


I’m going to give this a go! This sounds promising
