How about this:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "_Exit")

$cDummy = GUICtrlCreateDummy()
GUICtrlSetOnEvent($cDummy, "_Dummy")


 Local $aAccelKeys[1][2] = [["{LEFT}", $cDummy]]

While 1

Func _Dummy()
    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Hi", "LEFT key pressed")

Func _Exit()

Thank you for the quick reply, I have worked with those functions in the past but I was wondering if it was possible to use GUICtrlSetOnEvent() instead of those.

Melba that works and I guess is the only way to do that, thank you for the quick replies :)
