QuestionApplication threading issue? Pin

I'm not sure if this is the correct forum, but in case it's not, pls let me know where I can post for some assistance.

I'm trying to write a program that supports the following requirements:
Run while another program is running;
Get the keyboard input(s)
While on another program, my program will take the input and loop.

In other words, instead of repeatedly pressing keys, if I hold key down, my program will loop and return the key value to the active screen.

The problem I'm having right now, is that it works as a console, but when I switch to another screen, I loose focus of my application and the keyboard input is no longer being detected. I suspect I need help with threading but need some direction as well.

Here's what I've got so far.


#include <stdio.h>
#include <conio.h>
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

//function prototypes
void press_any_key();
void one();
void two();
void three();

int main(){
cout << "Start";
press_any_key();
getch();
return 0;
}

void press_any_key(){
bool done;
done = true;
char input;
do{
do{
input = _getch();
if(input == '2'){
cout << "Currently holding the right key";
done = true;
}
else if(input == '+'){
cout << "Abort.";
//done = true;
exit(0);
}
else{
done = false;
}
}while (_kbhit());
}while(done == true);
cout << "Done";
}

Help pls. Thanks
