You could use a timer that calls WM_GETTEXT. If you don't like that you'll have to write a system wide hook by calling SetWindowsHookEx (must be in a dll). If you want that, please look at "http://www.experts-exchange.com/Q.10096444".

Jecksom,

Your sample code works, I think both Madshi and You have the correct solution to my problem.

I don't know who gets the points on this one?.
