See more: C# Device Keyboard
I am writing a C# dll for barcode scanner that emulates keyboard. I am fighting with this for some time. I have problems with raw input. All examples that i found require MainApplication window handle. How to attach to device and get scanned barcode without it. Second problem is that i have to know from which keyboard it was sent from.

I tried to get it using this:

It gets me data and device name but require window handle.

For me problem is in this part of code:

IntPtr p = System.Diagnostics.Process.GetCurrentProcess().MainWindowHandle; System.Windows.Interop.HwndSource source =System.Windows.Interop.HwndSource.FromHwnd(p);
source.AddHook(new System.Windows.Interop.HwndSourceHook(WndProc)); 

MainWindowHandle is somethig that i do not have. And I cannot attach to windows messages. Answer to that will work for me

Do you have any ideas?
