    Unhappy Problem with CPU Usage

    Hi All,

    I am using MFC Activex Control project in VS 2005.

    In my project I am doing something like hooking. I have set these hooks from application.In this hooking , I have created some windows procedure(using CALLBACK function) through which I get messages into it contineously(Messages are like when my desktop window changed,cursor position changed,anything something happens on the the screen).For this I have to check contineously for update.

    And now my problem is like that when I call this hooking function than it starts executing and it does well and here I get all tese messages perfactly but during these constant message transfering my cpu usage goes upto 50%.So, that is very bad for me I want to reduse this cpu overhead near upto 10%.So, do you have any suggetion what to do for that???

    I will Appreciate your Answer.

    Thanks in Advance.

    If you are checking constantly then the CPU usage will be high. You need to either (a) use the Sleep function inbetween checking or (b) receive notifications from the OS when something has changed (that's the best way because then your app is sleeping most of the time).
