Delphi - Clear keyboard buffer.

Hi,
I am try for code to empty or clear the keyboard buffer if it is not empty.
There are some old Questions here for this, but I have problem with USB Keyboards.

I read Key with event OnKeyPress.

For Delphi 7.

Thanks in advice.

why do you need an empty keyboard buffer ?

when a pc is slow, some people keep typing, the pc then catches up
if you reset the buffer, that'll come over as very odd, and possibly annoying

what problem are you trying to solve ?
