    Windows Messaging

    I have an application that can display a complete list of all the open windows of different applications. Now I want to automatically update that list when someone opens, close, resize or move a window.

    Using Timer to update the list is a CHEAP!!!!! approach
    CBTProc hook can be used to find out if an application window has been open, closed, moved or resized. Now I want the OS to send message to my application whenever CBTProc experience any change in window, so that my application can update the list.

    So how can I define a user defined message that will send message to my application whenever an application window has been updated?

    Thanks in Advance

    Post a WM_APP message to your application
