Just wondering is there specific window message handler message for CTRL+TAB (and/or Win+TAB of Vista) - or is it just combination WM_SETFOCUS etc.? Edit: Darn this temporary lobotomy - I mean ALT tab, naturally :| [Edited by - _necrophilissimo_ on May 2, 2007 2:06:44 PM]

That would fall under the WM_SYSCOMMAND message with the wparams of SC_NEXTWINDOW and SC_PREVWINDOW.

There is no direct way to detect it. WM_ACTIVATE / WM_ACTIVATEAPP are the best bets if you need a handler for the case when it happens.

In any case, do NOT try to stop Alt-Tabbing.

Thanks, I'll look in to it.

That wasn't my intention, I'm just having small issue with ShowCursor + ALT-TABbing + Vista (the darn cursor re-appears after ALT-TABbing and I have to re-hide it when the game window is in focus).

By the way; Why aren't most commercial games supporting ALT-TABbing? Not that it's hard to implement or anything - heck, multithreading beats that 1000:1.
