Are you sure you want to handle this with DirectInput?
Probably it's better to watch for standart Windows messages WM_KEYDOWN WM_KEYUP?

DInput way to work with keyboard is:
1) Keyboard is BIG 101+ key keypad
2) Programmer should poll keyboard device for presed keys
So you (in cycle) poll keyboard device for 256 byte array containing information is key pressed, comparing to previous poll you decide what key is released an fire your "timer1.enabled:=false;" command.
