Disable CTRL C whilst certain forma are open (VB6 and Access VBA)
I've tried everywhere to get this solution. but no joy.
Surely some clever person out there knows the answer.
I need to be able to disable the use of CTRL C to copy.
This only needs to happen on when certain forms are active so AUTOKEYS is no use.
I can lose all the menus, it is the CTRL C that foxes me.
I had a dabble with variations of KeyDown and KeyPress events Iin Access) which I have used before
but I cannot wrap my head round whether they could stop this or if so how.
Anyone got any solutions or a direction to a suitable site.
I need to do this in an Access database, but it might also turn up in a vb app as well.
I am guessing that there must be some clever API that does it because in Excel when a macro is assigned to say CTRL c it takes priority
over the standard CTRL C copy, so something is checking the keyboard there.

Re: Disable CTRL C whilst certain forma are open (VB6 and Access VBA)
In the _KeyDown(KeyCode As Integer, Shift As Integer) event procedure, can you use something like:
If KeyCode = vbKeyC And Shift = vbCtrlMask Then
MsgBox "Can't copy from here!", vbExclamation
