Tutorial :Determine if a key is currently pressed [duplicate]



Question:

This question already has an answer here:

I have a need to determine if a key is currently being pressed. I do not need an event to fire, I simply need to determine if a key is being pressed to decide a code path. I looked around and there are some great GlobalKeyHook classes however they are event based.

Little example, basically I need to determine if the user is holding a key down when my app starts and if so then the app does one thing, other wise it starts up as normal. Does anyone have any idea's?


Solution:1

Look at this post, if you encounter problems to check the keyboard-state at app-startup.

Check the second eldest post, there is shown how to make it with DLLImport
