Hello... I am new to delphi, but i would like to know if there is a way to detect when a form's button(of a different application) is activated, not just with the mouse, but any other method as well(such as tabing to it and pressing enter). And after detecting this action either blocking it with an error message or allowing it to occur.  Thanks in advance.

You need to subclass that form, to receive messages... There is no way in doing it in VCL...

Increase the points to 100 to get the source code...
