Hotkeys for strategy ?

Can someone suggest a simple code to add to a strategy 2 hotkeys like ctrl+shift+B and ctrl+shift+S, for buy or sale.
I saw chart buttons which are nice but I prefer by experience simple things.
Thanks in advance.

I believe only in profits, not in prophets.

SendKeys.Send("^+{B}"); // HotKey for "buy"
SendKeys.Send("^+{S}"); // HotKey for "sell"

^=Ctrl
%=Alt
+=Shift

SendKeys.Send Method (System.Windows.Forms)

Or do you mean something like this?
http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en-US/csharplanguage/thread/e0f8bc49-f4a8-4182-8b20-35d2f31845bd

could be something like:

private void chart_KeyDown (object sender, KeyEventArgs e)
{
if (e.KeyCode==Keys.Ctrl && e.KeyCode==Keys.Shift && e.KeyCode==Keys.B)
{
isLong=true;
} ...

Thanks a lot.
It is more like the second one I think.
When I press key combination, my strategy opens a trade.
I look for a way to send information to my running strategy with the keyboard.
But I am not a coder :-( and still does not work. I miss something.
Maybe would you have a more detailed code to send me ?
Thanks a lot anyway very kind of you :-)

You need an event handler: "if this key is pressed, then chart_KeyDown is executed".

There is a mistake Ctrl should be Control. Did not test the combination.
The correct code for the combination is:

if (e.Control && e.Shift && e.KeyCode==Keys.B)

You need some more stuff to declare the event etc.
But I am not a programmer, so I am not so good in explaining that stuff.

OK. I see sam028 did.

Sam028, as you made SampleMACrossOverWithButton could you maybe make the same, more simple, with just to hotkeys input ?
Just to tell the strategy to go long or short.
Would be great as we have no clue how to code it
Big thanks in advance
