HookManager Details


The HookManager application was developed to be a tool for recording and playback of keyboard and mouse input.

This is an example for installing an application-defined hook procedures using Win32 SetWindowsHookEx() function. This project implements only WH_JOURNALRECORD and WH_JOURNALPLAYBACK hooks.

I was looking for more information and sample programs, but the only sample I'd found was Hooks32, an old Win32 project. Because I didn't find any information about these problems into the developer sites (which I know), I decided to publish this simple tool.

The application can be used to automate some routine tasks, for example - testing. Start the target application, launch the HookManager, and press the "Start Recording" button. Then HookManager minimizes itself and starts tracking keyboard and mouse events. When the recording is started, pressing CTRL+BREAK can stop it.

Windows stops the recording and playback if the user presses CTRL+ALT+DEL or CTRL+ESC, which generates WM_CANCELJOURNAL system message. But, be careful when you are journaling the mouse events! The recorded mouse events are with the current pointer coordinates, and if you close the target application and open it again, it will appear on different position, so the mouse events will go to wrong place.

This tool can be extended to do some more things. For example: the recorded events can be edited by changing the keystrokes (with different form data, etc.). But this is very precise work, because every pressed button generates 2 messages - WM_KEYDOWN and WM_KEYUP. The generated character depends from the state of other buttons - CTRL, SHIFT, CAPSLOCK, etc.
