  int           HotKey,


bool HasHotKey( int HotKey );

Visual Basic .NET

Function HasHotKey(HotKey As Integer) As Boolean


[in] Specifies the hot key which should be checked. The parameter has the same format as the returned value (LRESULT) of the Windows SendMessage function for the HKM_GETHOTKEY message sent. To obtain the hot key value in this format, you should pack the virtual key code of the hot key to the low-order byte of the value, and the key modifier that specifies the keys that define a hot key combination to the high-order byte.
[out, retval] Specifies whether the hot key is used by some command. If the value is TRUE, some command uses this hot key, and you cannot use the hot key for another command.
