SetWindowsHookEx, KeyboardProc and Non-static members

I am creating a keyboard hook, wherein KeyboardProc is a static member of a class CWidget.

class CWidget
   static LRESULT CALLBACK KeyboardProc(int code, WPARAM wParam, LPARAM lParam );


I want to call the non-static members of CWidget inside the CWidget::KeyboardProc.

What is the best way to do it?

KeyboardProc does not have any 32 bit DWORD where I can pass the 'this' pointer.


Given that you probably only want one keyboard hook installed at a time, just add a static pThis member to your class:

class CWidget
    static HHOOK m_hHook;
    static CWidget *m_pThis;

    /* NOT static */
    bool SetKeyboardHook()
        m_pThis = this;
        m_hHook = ::SetWindowsHookEx(WH_KEYBOARD, KeyboardProc, /* etc */);

    // Trampoline
    static LRESULT CALLBACK KeyboardProc(int code, WPARAM wParam, LPARAM lParam)
    { return m_pThis->KeyboardProc(code, wParam, lParam); }

    LRESULT KeyboardProc(int code, WPARAM wParam, LPARAM lParam);

    /* etc. */
