I have a need to poll the keyboard for the Shift key been pressed in a subroutine.

However i do not wish to do this through the normal events eg keypress, keydown etc.

Is there any function i can call that will return the result of whats currently been pressed on the keyboard ?

Thanks guys.

That is still using the keypress event, what im really after is how to read the keyboard in a function.

Well....the only way to monitor is through key events...however there's many flavors
