Definition

Defines the common dialog box hook procedure that is overridden to add specific functionality to a common dialog box.

protected:
 virtual IntPtr HookProc(IntPtr hWnd, int msg, IntPtr wparam, IntPtr lparam);
protected virtual IntPtr HookProc (IntPtr hWnd, int msg, IntPtr wparam, IntPtr lparam);
abstract member HookProc : nativeint * int * nativeint * nativeint -> nativeint
override this.HookProc : nativeint * int * nativeint * nativeint -> nativeint
Protected Overridable Function HookProc (hWnd As IntPtr, msg As Integer, wparam As IntPtr, lparam As IntPtr) As IntPtr

Parameters

hWnd
IntPtr IntPtr IntPtr IntPtr

The handle to the dialog box window.

msg
Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32

The message being received.

wparam
IntPtr IntPtr IntPtr IntPtr

Additional information about the message.

lparam
IntPtr IntPtr IntPtr IntPtr

Additional information about the message.

Returns

A zero value if the default dialog box procedure processes the message; a nonzero value if the default dialog box procedure ignores the message.

Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to override the HookProc method. The example consists of a class that inherits the CommonDialog class. In the class's HookProc override, the example evaluates the method's msg parameter against constant values for particular Windows messages. If the msg parameter equals the specified constant, the example writes trace output identifying the Windows message that was passed to the HookProc method. This example assumes that the class in which the HookProc method is declared inherits the CommonDialog class.

Remarks

A hook procedure is a mechanism by which a function can intercept events before they reach an application. When you override the HookProc method for a CommonDialog class, the operating system invokes your override of the function to post operating system messages to the window.

By default, the hook procedure centers the dialog box on the screen in response to a WM_INITDIALOG message.

Note

This method uses SecurityAction.LinkDemand to prevent it from being called from untrusted code; only the immediate caller is required to have SecurityPermissionAttribute.UnmanagedCode permission. If your code can be called from partially trusted code, do not pass user input to Marshal class methods without validation. For important limitations on using the LinkDemand member, see Demand vs. LinkDemand.

This property also uses the SecurityAction.InheritanceDemand security attribute; to override this member, the derived class must have the CustomPermission permission.

Notes to Inheritors

Inheriting classes can override this method to add specific functionality to a common dialog box. When overriding HookProc(IntPtr, Int32, IntPtr, IntPtr) in a derived class, be sure to call the base class's HookProc(IntPtr, Int32, IntPtr, IntPtr) method.
