You can use JediVCL's TJvApplicationHotKey component. It's really easy to use. If you don't have JVCL, you can download it from http://sourceforge.net/projects/jvcl

Cheers,

After you install JVCL, you can find this component in 'Jv Application and Forms' tab..

Unfortunatley its for a Unitec assignment, so I need code not an already built component.  Also have reread my assignment and I need to capture the keys when the component doesn't have the focus, not the program.
This makes it easier and I've now worked it out, thanks anyway
