Key Trapping

I have an event on a table which is fired on WM_KEYDOWN so that we can trap certain keys. This has worked well for single keys but I now need to trap Shift + Key also. In my key trapping procedure I added CASE VK_SHIFT + VK_NEXT but this never gets executed as the shift key fires the event on its own. How do I get it to trap the combination?

Hi David,

for that I use an event for trapping the VK_NEXT and in the procedure of that event I check with KeyPressed() if the Shift-key is down. Thtat works well for me.
