You need to set the keypreview property of the buttons form to true, and then put some code in the onKeyDown event of the form which reads as follows:
if Key = VK_F1 then 

The VK_F1 is a constant. You could also use VK_F2, VK_F3 etc. All this code does is call the code behind the onClick event of the button.

Hope this helps.
