dim MyEvents1 as CarbonApplicationEventsMBS
// use a global property to store your instance of your subclass
dim p as CarbonHotKeyMBS // this should also be global


p=new CarbonHotKeyMBS
p.AddKey(&h24, optionKey, OSTypeFromStringMBS("MBSG"), 5)

if p.LastError<>0 then
MsgBox "The Hotkey could not be registered!"
end if

// key will be released when p is destroyed on closing the window.
Notes: The CarbonHotKeyMBS has carbon in the name, but works fine with Cocoa, too. The Cocoa event handling system is based internally on the Carbon event handling. If you need to catch NSEvents, please use NSEventMonitorMBS class.
