wm_user


#1

How do i trap WM_USER (or WM_USER+1…) messages in JUCE.
I need to receive these messages from an external application.
Using the interprocess classes is not an option.

Haven’t got anything to do that. Juce is supposed to be a cross-platform thing, and that’s not just platform-specific, it sounds like a bit of a hack too!

Why not just create your own hidden message window and catch them on that?


#3

Your are right it is a bad solution as it is not cross platform friendly.
I will make my own message window.

There are two different useful methods for doing this in the useful tools and components section of the forum.
