How do I trap key presses in VB.NET?

How do I trap key presses in VB.NET? This used to be pretty easy in VB6 using ASCII values generated by the keys. I have a text box in which I only want the user to be able to enter digits 0-9. Thank you.
Trapping events are best performed using the TextChanged event of the textbox control. If you wish to trap the value you could at each instance of the event, check for the value of the control and if not between the range of values you mention, then to prompt an error.
