SetKeyboardState Reference in C#, VB.NET and VB6
Visual Basic 6 definition
Visual Basic 6 example source code
Declare Function SetKeyboardState Lib "user32.dll" (lpKeyState As Byte) As Long
Visual Basic .NET definition
Declare Function SetKeyboardState Lib "user32" (ByRef lppbKeyState As Byte) As Integer
public static extern int SetKeyboardState(ref byte lppbKeyState)
SetKeyboardState sets the state of every key on the keyboard. Each element of the 256-element array identifies information about the virtual-key whose virtual-key code matches the index of the element. If the &H1 bit is set, that key is considered toggled. If the &H80 bit is set, the key is considered to be currently pressed down. The keyboard information set by this function is thread-specific; its settings do not necessarily change key states pertaining to the system as a whole.
If an error occured, the function returns 0 (use GetLastError to get the error code). If successful, the function returns a non-zero value.
