Default How to detect Shift key state in VBA Excel


I need change cell value by double-clicking on it. But I want perform two different changes, what is possible done by state of Shift (or Ctrl or Alt) key. How can I in VBA Excel detect state of Shift, Ctrl and Alt keys respectively?

Something like Function ShiftKeyState() As Boolean
