Get Key State
This command saves the status of specific keys to a Boolean variable - true or false statement. In the example below we are checking the state of the CAPS lock key. The assumption is made that the CAPS Lock key is on. The result is saved to a Boolean variable. In this case the variable is named Key State. If the CAPS lock key is on, the Boolean variable stores a True value. If the Caps Lock key is off, the Boolean variable stores a False value.
Create If Statements based on the results to turn the CAPS lock key on if it isn't already, etc.
