Mat I ask, what are you using this for?
it would form some sort of keylogger, which sounds fishy to me.

Thats a main problem for me to find information about it.
however i don't need to hide it from process in task bar etc. I just want to let my program work when its minimized to handle copy events Because i used to copy item descriptions from official websites to our INTERNET magazine.
So when i copy the key number of the item i would like to sendkey to browser ... etc. :whatsthat:

All right - how about you run a loop to check the clipboard contents and then if the value returned isnt null then use SendKeys - there was a theead in the cb.net forum abou this recently.

Indeed google is, but we would prefer not to support something of a nefarious nature.

Feel free to PM me if you have questions.
