msg parameter are WM_KEYDOWN, WM_SYSKEYDOWN, WM_CHAR, and WM_SYSCHAR.
When overriding PreProcessMessage, a control should return
true to indicate that it has processed the message. For messages that are not processed by the control, the result of
base.PreProcessMessage should be returned. Controls will typically override one of the more specialized methods such as IsInputChar, IsInputKey, ProcessCmdKey, ProcessDialogChar, or ProcessDialogKey instead of overriding PreProcessMessage.
