I intend to make a program, which intercepts keystrokes (from the number pad) reassigns them, and sends them to the system.
IE. when I hit the + Key on the number pad, it should act like the s key.
The goal of this would be a "remote control" for a media pc with only the number pad on it.
Now, I have no idea how to "intercept" keys... read something about virtual keys and read in the MS library... there is even a code to display keytrokes... but this is way to high for me... couldnt even get it to work.
My experience in c++ is very limited, Im more the java type, but I someone told me java could not really intercept keystrokes on a systemlevel.
So, does somebody know how to do this and could explain it?
