Syntax

KbdFlushBuffer (KbdHandle)

Parameters

KbdHandle (HKBD) - input 
Default keyboard or the logical keyboard.

KbdFlushBuffer completes when the handle has access to the physical keyboard (focus), or is equal to zero and no other handle has the focus.

Some options operate differently in the DOS mode than in the OS/2 mode. The KbdHandle is ignored when coding in the DOS mode.
