What i need is the possibility to intercept the messages from the Netscape window before the Netscape process gets them (i think its called a hook) so i can alter them.

The simplest way to get a hook is to use this DLL from Desaware...

Yes, but thats a commercial product, which costs money.  If i had to solve all problems by buying dll's and VBX's, then there wouldn't be much fun in coding.

You Could Get the HWND of the Object Then Go From there

API Call

Private Declare Function FindWindow& Lib "user32" Alias "FindWindowA" (ByVal lpClassName$, ByVal lpWindowName$)
