SetClipboardViewer 'Conflict' Problem

Posted on 2004-04-01

I'm currently using SetClipboardViewer to have my program respond to when the clipboard is updated. It's working fine.

However, i intend to use this in conjunction with another program (that i didn't code). I believe it too uses SetClipboardViewer. Is it possible to put my program the first in the chain, or to somehow remove the other program from the chain (and perhaps later re-add them)?

Basically, what this 'other program' does is process data added to the clipboard and then replaces the data on the clipboard with the now processed data. I am trying to capture the unprocessed data before the other program captures it.

Any help would be appreciated.
