 Setting Num Lock and Caps Lock key states

Anyone know how to?  There is the following declaration, but how is it used?

Declare Function SetKeyboardState Lib "user32" Alias "SetKeyboardState"
(lppbKeyState As Byte) As Long

This is for VB5.

 Setting Num Lock and Caps Lock key states
From MSDN:

Because the SetKeyboardState function alters the input state of the calling
thread and not the global input state of the system, an application cannot use
SetKeyboardState to set the NUM LOCK, CAPS LOCK, or SCROLL LOCK indicator
lights on the keyboard.
