Hi,

I have a VB prog with a menu.
I can assignt F5 to F12 shortcuts
to different menu item EXCEPT F10.

F10 is not shown in the shortcut

I am using VB6 with service pack 5.

Thanks for your help

It is not listed because F10 is a system windows key for activating the main toolbar, i.e. File, Edit, View...etc.

You can still trap the key, just not assign it this way.

In the Form Load event write the following:
Me.KeyPreview = True

In Form Key Down:

Private Sub Form_KeyDown(KeyCode As Integer, Shift As Integer)
        if keycode= vbKeyF10 then
                msgbox "F10 is pressed"
        end if
    End Sub

Hi Sethi,

The code worked perfect. But at the same time it has activated "File" menu as mentioned by Bingie. Is there any way to avoid this ? like vbsendkey ?

Thanks for your help

Yes. Write this line:
SendKeys "{Esc}"
