Capture shift key status on mouse click

You can know shift key state using:

[DllImport(“user32.dll”)]
static extern short GetKeyState(VirtualKeyStates nVirtKey);

You can know state of keys, as follows:

The GetKeyState function retrieves the status of the specified virtual key. The status specifies whether the key is up, down, or toggled (on, off-alternating each time the key is pressed).

The return value specifies the status of the specified virtual key, as follows:

– If the high-order bit is 1, the key is down; otherwise, it is up.
– If the low-order bit is 1, the key is toggled. A key, such as the CAPS LOCK key, is toggled if it is turned on. The key is off and untoggled if the low-order bit is 0. A toggle key’s indicator light (if any) on the keyboard will be on when the key is toggled, and off when the key is untoggled.Example:

//
// True is L-SHIFT is down
//
bool lshift = ((GetKeyState(VirtualKeyStates.VK_LSHIFT) & 256)==256);
//
// True is R-SHIFT is down
//
bool rshift = ((GetKeyState(VirtualKeyStates.VK_RSHIFT) & 256)==256); short x = GetKeyState(VirtualKeyStates.VK_SHIFT); if ((x & 0x80) != 0)
{
// A shift key is down (right or left)
}
else
{
// A shift keys are up.
}
