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


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?


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

Get keyboard status in WPF Application in Main-Method during startup

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


No sooner did I post the question then I found the answer. This post was what I needed. How to detect the currently pressed key?
