How to receive Messages from other application

dubidubi Posts: 121Member
Suppose if I send a message from one application,
how can the other application receive the message that I send.
I can use SendMessage API to send a message.
What should I use to receive a Message.

From Application1,I use

const WM_MYMESSAGE WM_APP+$200
SendMessage(appHandle,WM_MYMESSAGE,0,0);

What should be written in Application2 to receive this message.

Thanks for your replies.

    You need to write an OnMessage() event for the application.

    [code]
    procedure TForm1.OnMessage(var Msg: TMsg; var Handled: Boolean);
    begin
    if Msg.Message = WM_MYMESSAGE then
    begin
    DoSomething(Msg.wParam, Msg.lParam);
    Handled := true;
    end;
    end;
