Hello All,

Thanks for reading my question

I just want to develop a very simple window application which would deal with ClipBoard. for the customization of the process, i just want that on certain key presses let's say (ctrl+Shift+1), when this keypress is done,my application performs some operation. whether the keypress is called at any other application providing my application is running in background.

also is there any event that could let me know when the data contained in ClipBoard is changed.

kindly provide me the guidliees. how would i achieve this ?

The methodology that you probably require is called 'Hooking' and in this case 'Hooking the Keyboard'.

The KeyBoard Hooks[^] article from here on Code Project should get you started but if not just Bingle for 'Keyboard Hook'.

Good luck! :)
