Hi,   XP, D7

I have an application which sends messages to fire a particular procedure using postmessage.
These messages are generated by a timer, keypress or interrupt from hardware.

I need a way to monitor messages and remove a message already sent.
Any ideas?

Thanks

you can use peekmessage to find if messages exist in a message system

Ok, I think you are not looking for a tool. You want to do it in your own app...

For messages sent to your Delphi app you can write your own message handler.

TApplication has a method HookMainWindow which you can use to capture messages before your application processes them.

Here you can find examples...

I've split the points.
