Show Desktop

This is an easy to programatically run the ShowDesktop (ie ToggleDesktop) command without having to use the Shell32 ActiveX control.

I had to do it this way because i needed to ultimately code it in asm for a shellcode demo.

Private Const KEYEVENTF_EXTENDEDKEY As Long = &H1
Private Const KEYEVENTF_KEYUP As Long = &H2
Private Const VK_LWIN As Byte = &H5B
Private Declare Sub keybd_event Lib "user32" (ByVal bVk As Byte, _
ByVal bScan As Byte, ByVal dwFlags As Long, ByVal dwExtraInfo As Long)

Sub form_load()
     Simulate key press
    Call keybd_event(VK_LWIN, 0, KEYEVENTF_EXTENDEDKEY, 0)
    Call keybd_event(Asc("D"), 0, 0, 0)
     Simulate key release
    Call keybd_event(VK_LWIN, 0, KEYEVENTF_EXTENDEDKEY Or KEYEVENTF_KEYUP, 0)
    Call keybd_event(Asc("D"), 0, KEYEVENTF_KEYUP, 0)
End Sub
