Dispatch "WS_ACTIVATE" messages
Posted on 2013-06-20
1. How to make a program that can make a specific window to remain inactive when clicking on it, but still the click to register ?
2. And how can I make to detect when the window wants to create another window and get the handle of it before the window is created ?
Note - that Im not a very advanced programmer so Ill pay someone to do this but I want to know what does those tasks implies first.... Thankyou
- I also tried applying the WS_EX_NOACTIVATE style to the window, but has no effect even if returns positive ! What else could I do ?
EDIT : Ive found that is possible, BUT I really need also the oppinon of other experts please !
Via DLL injecting/hooking :
#1. After the hooking process in this window, dispatch all the 'WS_ACTIVATE' messages that are coming to the window !
#2. Actually I just saw some time ago an article on codeproject just right about this, about dll injecting into the specific window, and by tracking the window's activity you can actually see when will want to create a new window and you can find what will be the window's handle before it will be created or drawn.
As I said, I want to know others oppinions ...
