Hi,

I have a Qt application in which i would like to listen to the event <Ctrl + R> even if the application is not focussed i.e, even if the user is using some other application, can someone tell me how this can be done.

I am looking at winEvent but i am unable to figure out how to use it, is there some example code that i can look at?

Thanks a lot!

You mean "hotkey" ? Try QxtGlobalShortcut from http://libqxt.org/

I guess you will need system level hooks. This will be dependant on OS
