David, not quite sure if this is the correct answer to your question, but when combining mouse and key events I did: EventHandler[ .... {"MouseClicked" :> If[CurrentValue["AltKey"], ..., ...]}] So, I am assuming the following should work: replace "MouseClicked" with "KeyDown" and use If construct to test the current value of multiple keys.
