The hotkey control is one of the controls provided as part of COMCTL32.DLL, but,
being of somewhat limited utility, has never found its way into Visual Basic's
controls. If you need one, however, it does the job really well.
When it has focus, you can press CTRL, ALT and SHIFT key combinations, and it
will show the chosen key combination as a string in a text box. You
can then use the key combination as, in this example, a hot key for
the application, or you could use it as a menu accelerator.
