keyboard hotkeys

Post by Mike » Sat Jun 21, 2003 6:17 am

my keyboard, an IBM KB-9930, has keys at the top for internet, word, outlook, winamp, aim, help, and standby (All of the keys, except internet, help, and standby, I changed from their factory settings. It also has track change, play, stop, volume and mute on the right. Those work fine. I have tried IBM's driver, but for some reason it only works sometime and isn't as customisable (i know, its spelled wrong :) ) as i need it. Does anybody know the code for VB5.0 pro to detect the press of those spcial keys, then I can take it from there.

Hey mike,<p>Try this code in VB. It will give you the key code.<p>Private Sub Form_KeyDown(KeyCode As Integer, Shift As Integer)
MsgBox KeyCode
End Sub<p>
