How to capture mouse events on screen RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,
             I am newbie to win32 development. I have to capture mouse events (mouse move, mouse click etc..) that occurs anywhere on screen not restricted to a particular application/window. This would be background deamon logging such events. It would be really helpful if someone could help me implement this.

    Thanks,
    Prakash

  • To receive all keyboard events, regardless of which application/window is currently active then you need to register a keyboard hook function.

    Refer to the MSDN documentation for KeyboardProc for details.
