VBScript and Key down syntax

I am trying to run this program below. The portion that is commented out (the if statement) is not working. Obviously I've got the wrong syntax or it's not possible. What I'm trying to do is to click F10 every 12 seconds until I hit the escape key, or until it has gone through it the number of times I have set in the counter. It all works except for the escape key part. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Pat

   intCount = intCount + 1
  'If keydown=chr$(27) then
  '   intCount = 25
  'End if    
                  
Loop
