This function retrieves the status of the specified virtual key. The status specifies whether the key is up, down, or toggled (on, off - alternating each time the key is pressed).
short GetKeyState( int nVirtKey )
- [input] Specifies a virtual key. If the desired virtual key is a letter or digit (A through Z, a through z, or 0 through 9), nVirtKey must be set to the ASCII value of that character.
- For other keys, it must be a virtual-key code. For example : VK_TAB
The return value specifies the status of the specified virtual key, as follows:
If the high-order bit is 1, the key is down; otherwise, it is up.
If the low-order bit is 1, the key is toggled. A key, such as the CAPS LOCK key,
is toggled if it is turned on. The key is off and untoggled if the low-order bit is 0.
A toggle key's indicator light (if any) on the keyboard will be on when the key is toggled,
and off when the key is untoggled.
//This function get the state of the Tab key.
short i = GetKeyState(VK_TAB);
