Well... this is not the if KeyPress thing..... Its like When whatever = whatever Press the Key :)
I really dont know if its possible what i need is:

A Delphi Program that see what other program( a full screen one ) do - done
When whatever = whatever ( at the Delphi program ) the Delphi program will press the key "1" i.e
Of corse that the Delphi program is running behind the main program so the "1" key will affect the main program.

Well... thats it.  Damn my english sux ( i am brazilian ) Sorry guys.....

The function you search for is named keybd_event
Look it up in the Microsoft Win32 help.
It generates key down or key up events.

Well... Almost there :) The problem is : It seams that the program cant act when the mais program( the full screen one ) is running. when the whatever = whatever the programn cant recieve the key but when I Alt+tab the and alt+tab again the mais program receives the key information....

dunno if u r understanding me :)

i am using

if i1 < 110 then
begin
  keybd_event( Ord('1'), MapvirtualKey( Ord('1'), 0), 0, 0 );
end;

Maybe cuz of the FullScreen stuff the program cant run or cant really press the key. dunno.

Hi, I think you have to write a Windows Hook function and install it on system so that hook function can monitor every key pressed in any program. Read Delphi Win32 API help, look for following function and read it carefully.

1. SetWindowHookEx
2. CallNextHookEx
3. UnHookWindowsHookEx
