Hi All..

I have a dialog with many controls. I need to block pop-up menu due to key press from keyboard.(VK_APPS).
 
If i have the focus on some control and if i press the windows menu key, I investigated(using Spy ++) that the dialog directly doesnt receive this command.

The dialog receives WM_COMMAND from control(eg.ComboBox) which had focus. This way Iam not able to get the hook. I tried using GetMsgProc and GetKeyBoardProc but i was not able to block the menu from poping up.

please help me in this matter.

When the context menu key (the right windows key) is pressed, a WM_CONTEXTMENU message is sent to the window independently of the keyboard event. This is the reason why it doesn't work to trap the key alone.

However You can trap and ignore WM_CONTEXTMENU using a 'Message Hook' .
