how to replace the code behind the alt-tab and crtl+esc system hotkeys with my own

hi.

I was wondering how a person would go about replacing the
functionality/code implemented behind the ctrl+esc and the alt+tab system hot keys used by Windows NT4.0 with their own?

I have used setWindowsHookEX to hook in and trap any keystrokes I would like, but it is tooooo far down the hook chain for me to stop or replace the ctrl+esc and the alt+tab normal NT4.0 system hot keys code/functionality.   My hooks never get the message.

Please respond with code snippets on how I would catch the system hotkeys before NT processes them and how I would go about inserting my code.

Thanks very much!  Much appreciated!

regards,


Colin Catlin

Documentation for CBT hook says you can "(...)prevent task switching by means of hot keys.". I nver tried that however so I can get a sample code. Please look at SDK documentation for CBTProc and experiment.
If you have probelms with CBT hook itself I may be able to help you (I have some experience with it).
