How can I set the State of the NumLock Key in Windows 95 and NT 4.0? I tried the version listed in the win32 help file - it works with CapsLock and ScrollLock - but not with the NumLock. Does this depend on the manufactor of the PC?
Please give a "clean" solution - if possible without hardware direct access. (PTM@Datacomm.ch)

hi !
I had this problem before I found this somewhere.
Let's say you want to change the numlock state to the opposite:

procedure TMyForm.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
  Var
    KeyState  :  TKeyboardState;
  begin
    GetKeyboardState(KeyState);
    if (KeyState[VK_NUMLOCK] = 0) then
      KeyState[VK_NUMLOCK] := 1
    else
      KeyState[VK_NUMLOCK] := 0;
    SetKeyboardState(KeyState);
  end;

I'm surprised because in the winapi help is written that this does'nt work but indeed it does. Thanks for your prompt answer.
