idletimer reset after mousemove or mouseclick

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am thinking if there is a way to tell if the system idletimer _Timer_GetIdleTime() was reset by autoit moving a mouse or an actual human moving a mouse. What do you think, how to check for this?

If you move the mouse by AutoIt set a flag. If you then check the idle timer and the flag is set you know it was you. After the check reset the flag.

but it won't help if I move the mouse before the idletimer checking function...

I guess I will have to set up another timer which will be started after every autoit mouse action and should have roughly the same value as _Timer_GetIdleTime() when the idletime check function runs. So if there was a user input during that time the idletimer value should be smaller then the time which has passed since the last autoit mouse action.

I'm not sure if a second timer can solve the problem.

Do you already have some code we can look at?
