How to register a global hotkey

Global hotkeys are very handy when your application should be accessible at all time. For instance, you are browsing the Web and suddenly want to e-mail your friend. The most convenient way to do so would be to press a shortcut and the e-mail client would popup with a “new message” window no matter what program you are using at the time. This can be done with global shortcuts. They are system-wide no matter if the program you are using uses the same shortcut. A global shortcut is more important.

Here’s the code to register and unregister a global shortcut.

  Messages, Windows;
  // Your main form's class
    procedure WMHotKey(var Message: TMessage); message WM_HOTKEY;
procedure TMainForm.WMHotKey(var Message: TMessage);
  // This example brings the application up front. Put your code here

Example of use:

RegisterHotKey(Handle, 100000 { Any unused number}, MOD_CONTROL, VK_F7);
// When closing program
UnregisterHotKey(Handle, 100000);

    Hi outstanding website! Does running a blog similar to
    this take a massive amount work? I’ve virtually no understanding of programming however I had been hoping to start my own blog in the near future. Anyway, should you have any recommendations or techniques for new blog owners please share. I understand this is off subject however I simply wanted to ask. Thank you!
