How to intercept a keypress (not a hotkey) of a window?

Recommended Posts

I want to press a key like 'b' or spacebar on a window (another program, not mine) and be informed when this occurs so I can respond to it.

I do not want to consume the keypress, just know that it happened.

I'm not really interested in modifiers just letters and the spacebar.

You would need to use a global callback to catch all key press.  See _WinAPI_SetWindowsHookEx example in help file to see how it can be implemented.
