QuestionWPF Transparent Window - can it still detect events? Pin

Hi Guru's and Genii

I'm totally stuck here and now I'm clutching at straws.

What I want to do is use a WPF application in C# to place hooks on global low level system events and override some of them.

That's so NOT going to work... Why can't MS see that we need access to these things to expand the UI / UX of Windows?

Anyway, my last ditch attempt at a workaround, before throwing out my 3rd Yr Degree project was to 'cheat'.

I had the idea of a full screen and topmost transparent window. That would obviously allow mouse clicks, events, scrolling typing etc.. to happen to what ever windows / os is running.

However, I need to be able to have my 'invisible' application detect some of these events and perform different things to what the UI of Vista would normally do. I.e. have MY invisible app grab the event and not allow it to 'drop through'

Does anyone please have any ideas.. otherwise I think I'm going to fail my degree... Frown | :( arrgghhh!!!



Grrr.... WHY CAN'T MS GIVE US MANAGED CODE ACCESS TO LOW LEVEL GLOBAL SYSTEM EVENTS??? i.e. HOW windows flick WORKS???



Meh.
