Determine the Contact of the UI with the Framework

Rather than use a plugin that works on the current Contact, I would like to create an EXE that is called as a trigger.  However, I need the EXE to know what Contact is currently being displayed.  Basically, when the User clicks on a field, I will have a trigger defined on the field that will do a task, but the EXE must know what Contact is currently being viewed by the user.  Is this possible?

 

I am using VB .NET.  Thanks.

There isn't any way that I'm aware of to accomplish this without a plug-in. You could potentially use a plug-in that launches your executable and passes it the UI level data you require, but your still using a plug-in at that point though to get to that UI level access.

Thanks for the response.  I could not figure it out and was wondering if someone with more knowledge than me had a thought on it.  Thanks again.
