Monitor API Calls in VB.NET

Hello.
Do you know how to monitor api calls to specific dll functions ?
I know that in VC++ you have to inject your own function between the dll and the system. You have to create a system wide api hook that will track the dll calls and then it will simply call the called dll function.

Do you know any example that is doing this ?

Thank you !
Alexander

no because you can't do this in pure vb.net code, you would need to also use unmanaged C++ code to do this (much like doing a global hook http://www.codeproject.com/csharp/GlobalSystemHook.asp could be used as a roadmap for such code) Basically your unmanaged C++ would call into yor vb.net managed code.
