Remarks

Hook procedures are installed in chains for particular hook types. CallNextHookEx calls the next hook in the chain.

Calling CallNextHookEx is optional, but it is highly recommended; otherwise, other applications that have installed hooks will not receive hook notifications and may behave incorrectly as a result. You should call CallNextHookEx unless you absolutely need to prevent the notification from being seen by other applications.
