Hello, I'm starting Windows programming and I'm searching how I can simply retrieve the current key pressed... Thanks for your answer!

You can also use GetAsyncKeyState from the Windows API. You can find the details on it's use at MSDN. I suspect undeads method is the easier of the two if you're using C.

OK, it works. I use the message loop and I copy wParam to a variable if
key down or I set it to -1 if key is up. My GetKey() function simply returns the variable.

Thanks a lot!

Is there a way to do it without using the message loop, like with
GetAsyncKeyState() for example?

n.b. I use C++
