    preventing virtual keystrokes and bypass it?

    I have two questions.
    1. If I have a form/text box that a user need to fill out, how do I make it so that the user can only do paste (ctrl+v) if they actually pressed the keys on there keyboard (and not have it set up as a macro from a mouse or something)?
    2. weird question, but how would I bypass question one so that I can use a virtual ctrl+v to paste into the form/text box instead of physically pressing it on my keyboarD?

    You must provide more detailed description of your problem, then i can help you.

    What o-s ? What framework/widgets library? Are you using windows api?

    So you don't want it to respond to software requests to insert Ctrl+V key-presses in the event system - only physical key-presses. Is that correct?
    What can this strange device be?
    When I touch it, it gives forth a sound
    It's got wires that vibrate and give music
    What can this thing be that I found?

    This is impossible to do at the user level. You'd have to write a rootkit to watch the APIs responsible for programmatic input. Which so happens to be the technique used by the Zone Alarm antivirus suite.
