Capturing hardware keys and receiving keydown events

Capturing hardware keys and receiving keydown events

Post by a.k. » Fri, 09 Dec 2005 20:49:45


Hello all,
I learned how to unregister hardware keys (keys that start apps like
Contacts, Messenger, Calender, etc.) but then they only send Key Up
messages. Is it at all possible to receive Key Down events too? It
would help me out greatly since the keys are normally held down for a
desired time.

many thanks,
kurt

Hi Kurt,

You didn't specify your development method but in
native C++ you could use Gapi (GX.DLL) - see MS docs
or PocketHal - see http://www.yqcomputer.com/
