SharpHook provides a cross-platform global keyboard and mouse hook for .NET, and the ability to simulate input events. It is a thin wrapper of libuiohook and provides direct access to its features as well as higher-level types to work with it.

If you're using Rx.NET, you can use the SharpHook.Reactive package to integrate SharpHook with Rx.NET.


Basic Usage

Refer to the SharpHook package for the basic usage guidelines.

Reactive Global Hooks

SharpHook.Reactive provides the IReactiveGlobalHook interface along with a default implementation and an adapter which you can use to use to control the hook and subscribe to its observables. Here's a basic example:

using SharpHook.Reactive;

// ...

var hook = new SimpleReactiveGlobalHook();







// or

Reactive global hooks are basically the same as the default global hooks and the same rules apply to them.

SharpHook.Reactive provides two implementations of IReactiveGlobalHook:

  • SimpleReactiveGlobalHook. Since we are dealing with observables, it's up to you to decide when and where to handle the events through schedulers.

  • ReactiveGlobalHookAdapter adapts an IGlobalHook to IReactiveGlobalHook. All subscriptions and changes are propagated to the adapted hook.


SharpHook.Reactive contains the IReactiveLogSource and ReactiveLogSourceAdapter so you can use them in a more reactive way than ILogSource and LogSource:

using SharpHook.Logging;
using SharpHook.Reactive.Logging;

// ...

var logSource = LogSource.Register();
var reactiveLogSource = new ReactiveLogSourceAdapter(logSource);
