corresponding Unicode character or characters.

Specifies the virtual-key code to be translated.
Specifies the hardware scan code of the key to be translated. The high-order
bit of this value is set if the key is up.
Points to a 256-byte array that contains the current keyboard state. Each
element (byte) in the array contains the state of one key. If the high-order bit of
a byte is set, the key is down.
Points to the buffer that receives the translated Unicode character or
Specifies the size in characters of the buffer pointed to by the pwszBuff
A set of bit flags that condition the behavior of the function. Set bit 0 if a
menu is active. Bits 1 through 31 are reserved.
The function returns one of the following values:
||The specified virtual key is a dead-key character (accent or diacritic). This
value is returned regardless of the keyboard layout, even if several characters
have been typed and are stored in the keyboard state. If possible, even with
Unicode keyboard layouts, the function has written a spacing version of the
dead-key character to the buffer specified by pwszBuffer. For example, the function writes the character SPACING ACUTE (0x00B4),
rather than the character NON_SPACING ACUTE (0x0301).
||The specified virtual key has no translation for the current state of the
keyboard. Nothing was written to the buffer specified by pwszBuffer.
|One character was written to the buffer specified by pwszBuffer.
- or more
|Two or more characters were written to the buffer specified by pwszBuff. The most common cause for this is that a dead-key character (accent or
diacritic) stored in the keyboard layout could not be combined with the specified
virtual key to form a single character.
The parameters supplied to the ToUnicode
function might not be sufficient to translate the virtual-key code because a
previous dead key is stored in the keyboard layout.
performs the translation based on the virtual-key code. In some cases,
however, bit 15 of the wScanCode
parameter can be used to distinguish between a key press and a key release.
