Compact Framework Key Logger

In a Windows CE mobile device application, I need to be able to log and send keys from/to the OS.  I know how to do this with the standard Windows OS, but I don't know how to do it with Windows CE.  The problem is that I can't pinvoke the User32.dll since it's not there.  So what is the equivalent code for the compact framework?

the mobile platform has coredll.dll that may well contain the stuff you're after. For sending keys you may want to use SendInput in coredll.dll.
