I am currently working on a project to identify users using their typing dynamics. I want to use the intervals
between keystrokes on the keyboard as a user type in their passwords, to identify the users.
I am using Windows XP and Visual Studio C++ 2003 to develope a MFC application project. I want to use a dialog with an edit box
to allow the user to enter his/her username and password.
I cannot process the WM_KEYDOWN and WM_KEYUP messages because when you type in the edit box, the keyboard focus is
on the edit box and not on the dialog, and I cannot specify event handler for the messages sent to the edit box.
Will a keyboard hook help me in my mission or will I have to use something else.
If you could help me I would appreciate it alot.
