How to work with clipboard mouse events like cut, copy, paste, delete and rename using VC++ or C++.

I was succesfull in performing these events using keyboard hooks.I have used virtual keys VK_CONTROL,VK_DELETE etc..

So i have trapped these events and stoped performing this events.So in the same way how can i do the same thing for the mouse.Can any one guide me to do this.I am feeling difficulty in finding the Copy,cut,paste,delete events from mouse right click(Using Mouse Hooks).

Thanks in Advance

I think you won't be able to do that at that level. At most, you might be able to handle contextual menu.

Not for within the Application but for the Windows.

Check the hook functions...[^]
Note : Fourth parameter should be 0 to make the hook global

Also there is an excellent article on codeproject itself...
