Is it possible to use the Application.OnMessage event from within a Word application?

I've tried it without any success. I've set the Application.Handle to the ActiveWindow in the AddIn initialisation.

Thanks

Hello Mark,

You can use Application.OnMessage event only on a modal form. This is because TApplication.Run isn't called for a DLL and TApplication's message loop isn't processed.
