here two meathods you can use :


Use a TTimer and in its OnTimer event do this:

if (GetKeyState(vk_Capital) and $1) = $1
then ShowMessage('Caps On') {Or update a property etc.} or statusbarpanel[0].text ......
else ShowMessage('Caps Off');

{Use vk_NumLock, vk_Scroll as above}




It's probably better to put this in an OnIdle event...like so:

procedure TMyForm.FormActivate(Sender: TObject);
begin
  inherited;
  Application.OnIdle := AppIdle;
end;

procedure TMyForm.AppIdle(Sender: TObject; var Done: Boolean);
begin
  IF GetKeyState(VK_CAPITAL) <> 0 THEN
    Begin
     StatusBar1.Panels.Items[0].Text := 'CapsLock';
    End
  ELSE
    Begin
     StatusBar1.Panels.Items[0].Text := '';
    End;
  Done := True;  {<- VERY important}
end;
