Hi Experts,

I want to capture the keys ALT+CTRL when my VB application (Developed in VB 6) is hidden or invisible. When user press the keys my application must be activated.

Hi Dave,
The code works. But i want my form to be activated even when my application is invisible or hidden. It works only when its minimized.

Description: I've seen many keyloggers which are very basic, althought his one is as well it has such features as hiding itself from the ctrl-alt-del list. And the ability to recognist characters such as Tab, Shifty Del etc. Next time you boot up your recordings will be in a new file output.txt in the same dir as the program.

No time to test it: 11:5 p.m. at night (zzz)

Hope this helps!

That's it!
