WM_HOTKEY Overview  Group

The WM_HOTKEY message is posted when the user presses a hot key registered by the RegisterHotKey function. The message is placed at the top of the message queue associated with the thread that registered the hot key.

WM_HOTKEY 

idHotKey = (int) wParam;              // identifier of hot key 

fuModifiers = (UINT) LOWORD(lParam);  // key-modifier flags 

uVirtKey = (UINT) HIWORD(lParam);     // virtual-key code
