Can you assign a keystroke to a hot corner?

For example, I want to assign option-D (toggles something in some app I use) to a hot corner.

Maybe via Keyboard Maestro but I doubt it...I'll check when I get to my computer in a few hours.

Didn't see anything in Keyboard Maestro. Hot Corner options are in System Preferences --> Desktop & Screensaver but there's no way to make it enter OPTION-D when you move the mouse to a hot corner. Also checked out Do Something When and didn't see anything even close to what you want to do.

What exactly are you trying to do? Why do you need OPTION-D to occur when you move your mouse to a corner? Is there any other way to do what you want to do?

That would be cool? Maybe with an applescript?
