VK Keyboard Constants

VK Keyboard Constants in Paradox Forms topic (part of our Corel Paradox / ObjectPAL Coding group).

Quick Search: Keyboard   Constants   VK Keyboard   VK Keyboard Constants  
Altamonte Springs, Florida, USA
Recently I've been trying to write some code to prevent my operators from getting into Windows via the Windows buttons on keyboards. I thought it may be as simple as determining the VK Keyboard constant and adding it to each form's keyphysical method. However, these buttons are not addressed in the Paradox Help Files for Paradox 10. Roll Eyes

But I just found them today Eek! ....thought I'd put it out there for others, so that it will help you too.

VK_LWIN ; Left Windows Button
VK_RWIN ; Right Windows Button

I just wanted to help in a small way. My way of saying a litle "thank you" to all of you who have greatly helped me over the years. Big Grin!
