Override PreTranslateMessage for application class and check when pMsg->message == WM_KEYDOWN && pMsg->wParam = VK_F10

It working for all other keys, but F10. Look for messages, coming to window by Spy++. There are no any WM_KEYDOWN messages after you pressing F10. When you RELEASE this button, WM_SYSCOMMAND (SC_KEYMENU) WM_INITMENU etc appear. I need to dispatch F10 when it jast pressed.

Yes you are right. I checked with Spy, when I press F10 WM_SYSCOMMAND is sent to main window. First I don't understand why you cannot handle WM_SYSCOMMAND with F10. I also found that mwindow that has focus is sent two messages WM_SYSKEYDOWN and when you release F10 key WM_SYSKEYUP, so you can trap these messages for that window.

Hi,

Add the handler for WM_GETDLGCODE.
And write the below code to handler,

   return DLGC_WANTALLKEYS;

I hope it will be perfectly satisfying you.
