Do you know the right parameter for keybd_event function
because i don't understand how to simulate pressing
two keys(for example ctrl and C) simultaneously.
Virtual codes include only one key.
                                            Thanks

you use a keyboard buffer (just like an array) and then check for keys that are down.
the following code should get you going, i'd guess.


var buf : TKeyboardState;

begin
GetKeyboardState(Buf);

SpeedButton1.Down := (Buf[vk_Shift]   And 128) <> 0;
SpeedButton2.Down := (Buf[vk_Control] And 128) <> 0;
SpeedButton3.Down := (Buf[vk_Menu]    And 128) <> 0;

SpeedButton4.Down := (Buf[vk_NUMLOCK]    And 128) <> 0;
update;

Hi  jpenev3,
This is My Unit,


// Unit Begins Here

unit Unit1;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms, Dialogs,
  StdCtrls;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    Button1: TButton;
    Memo1: TMemo;
    Button2: TButton;
    procedure Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
    procedure Button2Click(Sender: TObject);
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.DFM}

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
Var
      dwFlags: DWORD;
begin
//     if(isUpDownSt=1) then //KEYUP
//        dwFlags:= dwFlags or KEYEVENTF_KEYUP;
     Memo1.SetFocus;
     dwFlags:= 0;
     keybd_event(VK_CONTROL, MapVirtualKey(VK_CONTROL, 0), dwFlags, 0);
     keybd_event(ord('C'), MapVirtualKey(ord('C'), 0), dwFlags, 0);
     dwFlags:= KEYEVENTF_KEYUP;
     keybd_event(VK_CONTROL, MapVirtualKey(VK_CONTROL, 0), dwFlags, 0);
     keybd_event(ord('C'), MapVirtualKey(ord('C'), 0), dwFlags, 0);
     Application.ProcessMessages;
end;


procedure TForm1.Button2Click(Sender: TObject);
Var
      dwFlags: DWORD;
begin

     Memo1.SetFocus;
     Memo1.Lines.Add('NewLine');
     dwFlags:= 0;
     keybd_event(VK_CONTROL,      MapVirtualKey(VK_CONTROL, 0), dwFlags, 0);
     keybd_event(ord('V'), MapVirtualKey(ord('V'), 0), dwFlags, 0);
     dwFlags:= KEYEVENTF_KEYUP;
     keybd_event(VK_CONTROL,      MapVirtualKey(VK_CONTROL, 0), dwFlags, 0);
     keybd_event(ord('V'), MapVirtualKey(ord('V'), 0), dwFlags, 0);
     Application.ProcessMessages;
end;

end.
// END OF THE UNIT.


1- Open a new application put two buttons,
2- Drag a Memo on the form.
3- Assign the button click events.
4-Run The Application
5- Write Something into the memo and select your writings.
6- press button1 to copy the selected,
7-Press button2 to paste them into the memo.


I hope, it is what you want.

Regards.
