Hi ttanyag,

simulating numlock keydown:

  keybd_event($90, $90, 0, 0);
  keybd_event($90, $90, KEYEVENTF_KEYUP     , 0);

Hi ttanyag,

procedure SetNumLockON;
var
  A: TKeyboardState;
begin
  GetKeyboardState(A);
  // check that NumLock is OFF
  if A[$90] = 0 then
  begin
    keybd_event($90, $90, 0, 0);
    keybd_event($90, $90, KEYEVENTF_KEYUP     , 0);
  end;
end;
