    Capturing WindowsPhone hardware keys


    Could anybody please tell me how to capture hardware key events like home key , search key , volume key in WindowsPhone 7 and 8. Couldn't find any API's . Would u pls tell me an alternate method for this. I am working on C# . Can we do a workaround for this using C++. What could be a solution to this problem. Are there any thirdparty Libraries for tracking similar key events. Waiting for ur reply.

    You don't have any possibility to access most of the hardware buttons. The only ones you can get access to are the back button and the camera button.
