I used a simple and robust UniCode-TextBox written by Olaf to handle English phonetic characters. It works very well.

Now I need to add Ctrl+A to it to select all the text of the UniCode-TextBox. That is, I need to make this UniCode-TextBox trigger the KeyDown event. Is there a way to trigger a KeyDown event without subclassing? Thanks.
