WndProc not working as expected?

Hi

I have overriden WndProc to detect when the key is pressed. Because it
didnt work i inserted debug code to detect what messages pass through
the WndProc exactly.My application is minimized in taskbar and visible
via notifyicon. When I run the program :

protected override void WndProc(ref Message m)
{
System.Diagnost ics.Debug.Write Line(m.Msg);

base.WndProc(re f m);
}

I see :

....and no more messages pass through WndProc. I need to catch windows
message when user presses Control twice. Why no more messages pass
through the WndProc and how to catch control presses twice?

Best Regards

The key down event would only occur if your window has focus, which it
doesn't. What you need is a global keyboard hook. I don't recall how to do
it, but two method names I do recall are SetWindowsHookE x and
CallNextHookEx.

Hi: I've searched newsgroups and various archives, including MSDN & MFC sources, but at this point failed to locate an accurate and simple implementation of WndProc function for MSWindows window objects.
