VB2010 - Hotkeys
In this tutorial I'll teach you how you can use hotkeyfunctions in Visual Basic (2008 or) 2010.
1.Start by creating or opening a project. (call it hotkeyfunctions)
*1x Timer (Enabled = True) (Interval = 100)
3. Go to the codes, and add the following line of code at the top of your codes.
Private Declare Function GetAsyncKeyState Lib "user32" (ByVal vkey As Long) As Integer
4. Double click the new timer and add the following codes:
Dim starthotkey, stophotkey As Boolean
stophotkey = GetAsyncKeyState(Keys.F4)
starthotkey = GetAsyncKeyState(Keys.F3)
If starthotkey = True Then
'Start codes here
If stophotkey = True Then
'Stop codes here
As you can see, the F4 and F3 are used as hotkeys. You can change them (Intellisense will help you select a key)
You have now created your very own hotkey application !
