Namespace Extensions and Handling F3/CTRL+F by our application

I have a namespace extension written by me. When I press F3 or CTRL+F, then I want to show a dialog of my own instead of the default Windows Search dialog.

How to override Windows behavior?

You mean something like: http://www.codeelephant.com/#_Toc78986802 ?

If not please explain what you are using - MFC and so on ;)
Basically in any language you will need to capture the keyboard input and to acr based on what had been pressed

Hi Experts/Admin,

For some reason, this question had been lying around for a while without reaching a solution. However, there is one nice URL on the topic, which I would like to share with you anyway:

http://www.codeproject.com/shell/namespcextguide1.asp

(It is actually a multipart article, significant among them comes with a lot of examples and demo applications).

I have'nt ignored. Rather EE and all sources were up/down and left-right searched.  :( :(  

The step-by-step guide helped out and the nice IPersist interface again lends a helping hand here:
