Only in your application?

Here is an example in VB.Net 2005 (or above) using a PictureBox:
Public Class Form1
 
    Private Sub PictureBox1_MouseDown(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs) Handles PictureBox1.MouseDown
        If My.Computer.Keyboard.AltKeyDown AndAlso e.Button = Windows.Forms.MouseButtons.Right Then
            MessageBox.Show("Alt-RightClick")
        End If
    End Sub
 
End Class
