A very good book for learning subclassing and hooking
What can I say, this is a great book.
Disadvantage is that hooking & subclassing degrades system performance.

All of the basic techniques are revealed and a lot more
In Subclassing & Hooking With Visual Basic, computer expert Stephen Teilhet explains that Windows is essentially a messaging system and that every user action creates one or more messages to carry out a communication. In addition to generating the message for the mouse button click, the action produces a wide array of other messages, including messages to repaint the button in its depressed state, determine the state of the mouse cursor, and others. Subclassing and the Windows hooking mechanisms are very powerful techniques that operate on messages within the Windows messaging system and Teilhet succinctly explains and illustrates the power that subclassing and hooking give developers in controlling or manipulating messages to achieve a desired result. All of the basic techniques are revealed and a lot more besides. Subclassing & Hooking With Visual Basic is especially recommended for VB and VB.NET developers, but will also prove invaluable for C/C++, Managed C++, C#, and Delphi users.

a great book about subclassing and the actions you can achieve using vb and not c++. Helped me built customized apps for certain strict environments in no-time. Good work!
