Disable Mouse, Keyboard, Touchscreen Monitor

3 posts in this topic

Hello,

I am doing development work on a handheld Windows 2000 system. I need the ability to "turn off" (have the computer ignore) the keyboard and mouse. I also need the ability to have the computer ignore any signal coming from its touchscreen monitor which is connected as a USB device. Someone recommended the AutoIt program but I haven't been able to find anything on the website so far dealing with disabling devices. Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You,

Tim Perry

Kinda depends how the touchscreen works? I thought they kinda just emulated a mouse, so that *should* work....

is there a way to do this so that it blocks keyboard input with the exception of Alt-tab, and then popup a menu to yes/no continue/exit script?

this was my script but it didnt work

=======

;;if program is inactive, then...

Winwait active, 'program', 0

;;open message box with yes/no choices

msgbox, 20, Continue?, "To continue with script, click YES. To end script, click NO."

if Yes

;;restore alt-tab'ed 'program'

WinRestore, 'program'

else

;;exit autoit and script

exit, 'autoit.exe' 'script.aut'

=======

im not sure the exact if/else commands, but im used to using VB
