Is there a way to find the KeyCode when we don't know where is the focus. I don't want to use SetFocus. I just want to catch the KeyCode Anytime.
If it is possible without Api i'd like?

Are you talking about monitoring which keys are pressed in your app?  You can turn on the keypreview for the form.

Ok,  turn on your keypreview for the form.  This will send the keypreview property of the form.  This will force the keys to affect the form and not the controls on the form.  You can then validate the keys in the Keyup or Keydown events to involk the differant responses you wish to create.
