Sorry for my english, I'm a newbee from white-russia(Byelarus).
I made a proc which reads joystick and emulate key pressings
when joy buttons are pressed.It reads twice with optional delay
and proceed keypress emulating only if results equ.

Now I want to include my proc in FASM-tray-example, but
I get my proc working only when tray-example window is
active and is under cursor.I have no idea what to do to
make program proceed my proc when program is background.
Help me please.

Code:
proc PPJReadProc

You mean I have to put my proc into dll and run it in its own thread
or I even can make thread without dll?
I will try to learn threads, thank you!

Thank you, but I can't use this API because joySetCapture
can be used only with one window at a time but I need
other program be able to capture joyinput

you're welcome

yes, you can run procedure as thread. Study MSDN about Multithreading, look at API CreateThread (i think)

Thank you, VID, I always have a problem to find a subject which I need because this forum, MSDN, everything is in English and I am not so experienced in special termins written on foreign lang, how can I find what I need? But when a subj is found I have an opportunity to learn it with the help of dictionary and study is going up!

Thank you I understand how to create thread.You helped me to find the right API!
Would you be so pleased to help me one more time?
That proc reads virtual joypad which reads sega joypad
conected to parport via adapter.
Now I want to read data directly from parport
what functions can read/write parport under NT/2k/XP?
and how to set logical 1 on parport's pins?
