I tried the script on which looked promising but I get an error complaining about

C:\Scripts\GDI\GDI_001.au3(33,75) : WARNING: $RDW_INVALIDATE: possibly used before declaration.

The script from that page is below (not my code):

Does anyone know what to include to get these variables?

Replace #include <GDIPlus.au3> with #include <WindowsConstants.au3> and it should work properly.

When you hit the clear button it calls

Func _ScreenClear()
    _WinAPI_RedrawWindow(_WinAPI_GetDesktopWindow(), 0, 0, $RDW_INVALIDATE+$RDW_UPDATENOW+$RDW_ALLCHILDREN)
EndFunc

but this doesn't unblurr the screen for some reason. Only if I terminate the program and it calls _GDIPlus_Shutdown() does the blurr effect go away.

I've considered what I' trying to achieve here and blurring is not sufficient to hide the onscreen keyboard strokes.

What I really need to to is just draw a black rectangle over an area of the screen. Sorry to be such a pita.

I tried to modify this code to blur just a rectangle with top left at 30,420 and bottom right at 610.660.

It's not working. Can anyone see what I'm doing wrong here?

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <Constants.au3>
#Include <ScreenCapture.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>

;top left of target area 30,420
;bottom right of target area 610.660

Sleep(1000)
WEnd

_GDIPlus_Startup()
$nRatio = 50
$iInterMode = 1
$iPixOffsetMode = 2
$iSmoothMode=0
    $hBMP = _ScreenCapture_Capture("",30,420,610,660, False)
    $hImg = _GDIPlus_BitmapCreateFromHBITMAP($hBMP)
    $hScreenDC = _WinAPI_GetDC(0)
    $hScreenGraph = _GDIPlus_GraphicsCreateFromHDC($hScreenDC)
    $hImg2 = _GDIPlus_BitmapCloneArea($hImg, 30, 420, 580/$nRatio, 240/$nRatio)
    $hMemGraph = _GDIPlus_ImageGetGraphicsContext($hImg2)
    $a = DllCall("GDIPlus.dll", "int", "GdipSetInterpolationMode", "hwnd", $hMemGraph, "int", $iInterMode)
