Listen to the key press event.

You can override the mehod in a derived widget QWidget::keyPressEvent(QKeyEvent*) and check for Qt::Key_CapsLock in QKeyEvent::key().

There are other way to catch event according to your desing, like installing an event filter and filter the event you want with QObject::installEventFilter()

But knowing if the capslock is on without user input is still a mystery for me.
