How can one capture the client side message coming from NET SEND in VB6?  Is there an ActiveX control that will do this?

Thanks for any ideas.

The only way I have seen this done was the example I posted in your previous question.Hopefully someone will come up with an alternative solution for you.

To mmusante,

When I click on that link it will not allow me access.  I went to the home page and could not find it there.

Thanks

Your best bet is to take the following steps:

Install a firewall (Tiny Personal Firewall is perfect for this.)
Have someone Net Send you a message.
See what port the Net Send is being sent to.
Turn off the messenger service.
Write a VB App with Winsock that listens on that port.
Intercept message.

I do not know of a way to do this, unless mmusante's method works, just wanted to make one note.

Javin007, good idea, but "net send" messages are sent over netBIOS ports, which are in constant use by Windows, so I doubt you could even listen on that port (134-135 I believe).

Good luck!

If what YohanShminge is true, then good luck.  That's the only option I can think of.  :/

There is a freeware utility here:

However when you check the box to not show the windows message,it still flashes on the screen for a second so it most likely uses code similiar to the code I posted the first time you asked this question.I wouldn't be suprised if the ocx did the same.
The ocx did not work for me though,not to mention it will only run for 10 minutes until you purchase it.
