Remote Desktoping or VNC'ing to an application
Posted on 2006-04-06
Is it possible to have/build a RDP or VNC server that will accept connections from users but only show them the window given by a specified handle? It would need to support multiple connections on one server, independant of each other.
So I could launch an instance of my own app which has a windows form and let them connect to that and they coould only see and interact with that form? No desktop behind etc.
If that's not possible, I think I could build a .net app that would create a regularly updating image of the app, so does anyone know of a way of streaming the changes in this image to the client, and then I guess i'd need a way to send up mouse position and keyboard input...
If i do it that way - is it possible to emulate the cursor over a window? Because there will be multiple instances of this app running on the same server so I'd need to take the positions of the cursor on the client and emulate the presence of a cursor over the app on the server side...
Kinda feels like I'm rebuilding VNC here :)
