Trapping The Keypad 'Clear' Key

Hello, all!

I was wondering if anyone knew what message is sent when a user presses 
the 'CLEAR' key that is located in the keypad area of an extended 
keyboard (the one right next to the '=' sign, which sometimes doubles 
up as the 'Num Lock' key). I know that keyboards differ from system to 
system, and from platform to platform, so I was wondering whether using 
'rawKeyDown/Up' is actually a reliable way to trap this event... (ie, 
is the key number passed as the parameter in the rawKeyDown, the same 
on all platforms/keyboards?).

Many thanks for any hints or suggestions,

Igor de Oliveira Couto
