I am curious to know if anyone out there has a code solution to cature incoming netsend messages, i.e. stopping the standard windows popup and doing something else with the message, from within own application.
I am looking at this more from interest than any great need but speedy answers would be appreciated, as it is now that this has caught my attention, and if there is a solution then it will come in very hand in the near funture.

Cheers

Hmmmm....

I don't know...

Is it possible to capture a windows internal text?

If this is possible then you could have a procedure that scans for the Window caption (i think it is 'Message Service' or somthing similar) then call a procedure that retrieves the internal text.

To scan for the window use the findwindow function:

if findwindow(nil,pchar('Message Service')=0 then //(Or null maybe - check)
    exit
else
GET_WINDOW_INTERNAL_TEXT

Hope this may help others be more specific and possibly answer your question

Hmmm... well i sort of gave an answer.

You could use print screen to capture the message when the window appears (scan for 'Message Service' then when found print screen using key_event).

I reckon i deserve the 20 points ;-)

I will accept your answer, as the findwindow functionality came in useful elsewhere.
I really wanted to intercept and stop the netsend message being displayed, and re direct it else where... but that was an old project and is long forgotten now, and we ended up using alternatives anyway, as we could find no suitable way of properly catching teh netsend message 'cleanly'
