Is an autokeys macro safe to use in a runtime app?

    I have an autokeys macro that does 2 things only.
    It disables CTL + any function key
    It disables SHIFT + any function key

    I am very aware of the problems of using macros with a rutime app.

    I have used this autokeys macro in my app and tested it starting the app
    with the runtime switch. I have not found any problems so far.

    Are there any MVP's or other seasoned developers who have successfully used
    such an autokeys macro with a runtime app? If not could you comment on any
    problems you encountered. The work around with keydown events on every form
    is a lot of work.

    Thanks Nugimac

    The worst problem with macros is that you can't trap and handle errors. That
    doesn't seem to be a problem with AutoKeys. I haven't used it in a runtime,
    but you are correct that the VBA code alternative is not desirable.

    Unless you get some feedback that concerns you, I'd suggest you go ahead and
    use AutoKeys.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
