responding when window is not focused
I would like to set up some hot keys so my window responds to Ctrl+'somecharacter' when it does not have focus. I used RegisterHotKey(), but it does not help much when the window needs focus for that function to work. Is there a way to make the program respond to certain keystrokes, kind of like a desktop wide hotkey?
The reason for this is my program is a modeless dialog, and does not display a window on the bottom of the page near the 'Start' button. So to find it you need to close all the other windows. I would like to set up a key system so it is set to the foreground with just a couple keystrokes.
