SetKeyboardRepeatInfo - Set values about keyboard auto-repeat feature

' set new values for keyboard speed and delay
'
' DELAY is the timeout after which auto.repeat starts
'       can range from 0 (250ms) to 3 (1 sec)
' SPEED is the speed of auto-repeat
'       can range from 0 (2.5 repetitions/sec) to
'                 to 31 (about 30 repetitions/sec)
' If MAKEPERMANENT is True, then these new values persists among
'    subsequent Windows sessions

Sub SetKeyboardRepeatInfo(ByVal Delay As Long, ByVal Speed As Long, _
    Optional ByVal MakePermanent As Boolean)
    Dim flags As Long

    ' are these changes permanent?
    If MakePermanent Then
        flags = SPIF_SENDWININICHANGE Or SPIF_UPDATEINIFILE
    End If
    
    ' set the keyboard delay
    SystemParametersInfo SPI_SETKEYBOARDDELAY, Delay, ByVal 0&, flags
    ' set the keyboard speed
    SystemParametersInfo SPI_SETKEYBOARDSPEED, Speed, ByVal 0&, flags
End Sub
