Hooking windowsmessages with python

I'm trying to set a message hook with python to catch WM_DROPFILES.
The guiframework is Tkinter.
Here a code snippet:
> hwnd = eval(self.wm_frame())
> wnd = win32ui.CreateWindowFromHandle(hwnd)
> def test(self):
> print "blala"
The DragAcceptFiles-Call seems to be alright. When i drag a file over
the gui there is this drag-and-drop icon. But the problem is, that the
callback-function (test) is never executed.
I also try different messages like Mousemove or Buttondown. So i think
there is a problem with the HookMessage function.
I read that you must compile Python with PYWIN_WITH_WINDOWPROC option
enabled. Is this the problem?
Can someone give me a short working code to hook a message so i can try
it on my workstation?
Thx in advance!
