Block Input until you want to enable

Recommended Posts

Background Story: Ex-wife is in Kuwait, I have our 2 children. Kids video chat with her. They constantly hit keyboard shortcuts and mouse movements.

I would like to use the BlockInput() but the problem is I would like to stop the input at any given moment by a hotkey or something. But once BlockInput(1) is in place HotKeySet doesn't work.

I could do BlockInput while the:

>>>> Window <<<<

Title: Adobe Flash Player

Class: ShockwaveFlashFullScreen

Position: 0, 0

Size: 1280, 800

Style: 0x94000000

ExStyle: 0x00000000

Handle: 0x00000000001E05A2

is up but this eliminates me from ending the video call on my end.

Anyway I think about being able to block the input and allowing to input to exit script on command allows a chance for the kids to press keys ect.

Something else I might can try is to have a file on a flash drive and have the program keep checking the flash drive for the file and if the file doesn't exist (removing flash drive) then the script exits. Also starting the script would be tricky because I want the video call to be fullscreen.

Any help would be appreciated!

You could give the a try. It lets you "Block all keyboard/mouse keys *except* specific keys/events."
