[Solved] Block Mouse Input

Recommended Posts

IanN1990

Heya

The following code sets me away for msn, steam and skype. Problem is if the mouse is moved at all during this code it all goes a little wrong :graduated: So i would like to block all mouse input while the code is being run. I did a little search on the forum but could only come up with blockinput"which didn't work" and mousetraping which in my case wouldn't work as i need the mouse to be moved to the locations

#NoTrayIcon
$CurrentPos = MouseGetPos()
WinActivate ("Friends")
MouseMove(-1810,40,0)
Mouseclick("Left")
send("{Down 1}")
send("{Enter}")
WinSetState("Friends","",@SW_MINIMIZE)
 
MouseMove(-1825,65,0)
Mouseclick("Left")
send("{Down 1}")
send("{Enter}")
 
MouseMove(-1875,605,0)
Mouseclick("Left")
send("{Down 1}")
send("{Enter}")
MouseMove($CurrentPos[0], $CurrentPos[1], 0)

Anyone have any ideas ?

If you're on Vista or Win7 you need #RequireAdmin to use blockinput.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

yea i had a feeling, but this script runs on lock off and log on. So a UCA pop-up is the last thing i need :S

Have you tried ControlClick and ControlSend instead of the unreliable MouseClick and Send?

nope, i agree mouseclick and send are not the best but it was a nice fast thing that mostly works

Looking at the Help file of controlclick and controlsend it looks a little complex.

so after a little while reading and trying out them. I can see why it would be the more prefered option over the mouseclicks stuff but i am having issues with control click

ControlClick ( "title", "text", controlID [, button [, clicks [, x [, y ]]]] )

Controlclick("Windows Live Messenger","","[CLASS:MSBLWindowClass]","left",1,50,50) but nothing happens

after a while of searching i came across this post

it seams trying to use cords in this command is very compelx and troublesome, http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/user/35302-guinness/ said "As you can see from this Example you don't necessarily need the coordinates if you have the ControlID and Window Handle."

How would i go about getting the ControlID and Window Handle ?

Using the Auto WIndow info doesn't let me hover over the status button, it takes msn live as a whole
