Hi, I'm allowing my window to be switched to fill the screen by pressing Alt+Return, like Media Player and similar programs for example. I'm doing this as follows:
case WM_SYSKEYDOWN:
	if(LOWORD(wParam) == VK_RETURN && ((lParam >> 29 & 0x1) == 1)) {
		toggleFullscreen();
		
		return 0;
	}
break;
This works fine, however when pressing this I get a system beep sound, probably because menus are controllable with the alt key down or something.. Is there any way I can override this behavior for Alt+Return? I don't want that beep =) Thanks, /Erik
