Trying to detect keypress

I made a method that detects when a key is pressed, but its not working! Heres my code

void KeyDetect(object sender, KeyEventArgs e)
{
if (e.KeyCode == Keys.W && firstload == true)
{
MessageBox.Show("Good, now move to that box over to your left");
firstload = false;
}
}


I also tried to make a keyeventhandler but, it sais "cannot assign to key detect because it is a method group"

public Gwindow()
{
this.KeyDetect += new KeyEventHandler(KeyDetect);
InitializeComponent();
}

Answer

Use keypress event like this:

private void Form1_KeyPress(object sender, KeyPressEventArgs e)
{
    if (e.KeyCode == Keys.F1 && e.Alt)
    {
        //do something
    }
}
