I have been browsing online and I haven't found any help, I am trying to make F12 a hotkey for my program that you can use even when the form isn't in focus. I want the button to start AND stop the timer. It will start it when the timer isn't running, and if the timer is running it will stop it.

Thank you for any help in advance.

It depends on what do you want to achieve, and, importantly, on you UI library. You should always tag your application type or UI library you want to use.

You're looking for a "global keyboard hook". There's a bunch of examples on the web in C# and VB.NET.
