Disable Mouse and other Keys except Number and Directional keys in a screen


Hi all,

Recently we have developed a sceen program as per the requirements of client who are used to enter meter readings using only Enter key. They used to give Enter key to give meter readings, date of meter reading, meter reading note and consumption in their legacy system.

Though we developed the screen as per the requirements with all validations checking simultaneously which are required but we failed to handle mouse and other keys as we have not found any specific events occured by the keys.

Now some of the meter readers are using mouse and other keys and because of this our code is getting failed and no validations are working at all. So we want to disable the mouse and other keys except Number keys and Directional Keys while we are in the screen so that they are bound to work with the Enter and NumKeys as per their requirements.

Please help me with an idea or code snippet by which we can solve the problem. <removed by moderator>
