Question:
How to get keyboard hook from windows?

Answer:
You need to buil library, and attach to your application.
Here source code to retrieve keyboard typing.



{
Retrieve what user types on the keyboard.
}

library HookLib;
uses
madExcept,
Windows,
Messages,
SysUtils;
type
PHookRec = ^THookRec;
THookRec = record
AppHnd: Integer;

end;
var

AryChar: array[0..1] of Char;
Count: Integer;
begin
Result := 0;
if Code = HC_NOREMOVE then Exit;
Result := CallNextHookEx(hKeyHook, Code, VirtualKey, KeyStroke);
{I moved the CallNextHookEx up here but if you want to block
or change any keys then move it back down}
if Code < 0 then
Exit;
if Code = HC_ACTION then
begin
if ((KeyStroke and (1 shl 30)) <> 0) then
if not IsWindow(hMemo) then
begin
{I moved the OpenFileMapping up here so it would not be opened
unless the app the DLL is attatched to gets some Key messages}
hMemFile := OpenFileMapping(FILE_MAP_WRITE, False, 'Global7v9k');
PHookRec1 := MapViewOfFile(hMemFile, FILE_MAP_WRITE, 0, 0, 0);
if PHookRec1 <> nil then
begin
hMemo := PHookRec1.MemoHnd;

if Count = 1 then
begin

{I included 2 ways to get the Charaters, a Memo Hnadle and
a WM_USER+1678 message to the program}
PostMessage(hApp, WM_USER + 1678, Ord(AryChar[0]), 0);
end;
end;
end;

if hKeyHook > 0 then

{you need to use a mapped file because this DLL attatches to every app
that gets windows messages when it's hooked, and you can't get info except
through a Globally avaiable Mapped file}
hMemFile := CreateFileMapping($FFFFFFFF, // $FFFFFFFF gets a page memory file
nil, // no security attributes
PAGE_READWRITE, // read/write access
0, // size: high 32-bits

PHookRec1.MemoHnd := MemoHandle;
hApp := AppHandle;
PHookRec1.AppHnd := AppHandle;
{set the Memo and App handles to the mapped file}
Hooked := True;
end
else

end;

function StopHook: Boolean; export;
begin
if PHookRec1 <> nil then
begin
UnmapViewOfFile(PHookRec1);

2. Code from the calling Program
{this program get's the Char from the DLL in 2 ways,
as a Char message to a Memo and as a DLLMessage WM_USER+1678}

procedure TForm1.DllMessage(var Msg: TMessage);
begin
if (Msg.wParam = 8) or (Msg.wParam = 13) then Exit;
{the 8 is the Backspace and the 13 if the Enter key, You'll need to
do some special handleing for a string}
DllStr1 := DllStr1 + Chr(Msg.wParam);
label1.Caption := DllStr1;
end;

Exit;
end;
if StopHook1 then

FreeLibrary(hLib2);
{for some reason in Win XP you need to call FreeLibrary twice
maybe because you get 2 functions from the DLL? ?}
