How to remove blockinput(1) effect by running blockinput(0) from another autoit script ?

15 posts in this topic

I am using these codes:

BlockInput(1)
Run(@DesktopDir & "\autoit\" & "mu.exe", "")

-> mu exe

sleep(5000)
Blockinput(0)

blockinput(1) is working ok, but blockinput(0) is not effecting. how to remove effect of blockinput by running another autoit script or exe file ?

Have you tried using shellexecute() instead of run.

blockinput(1)
Run(@desktopdir & "autoit" & "my.exe")

It probable will not fix your problem but shellexecute() is better for running programs than run().

As for block input I think you can just set scripts to undo another dirty work as in the real programming world it would clash horribly.

sorry I cant help more.

ShellExecute will not work either. You must call BlockInput(0) from a script that is enabled from. You can always hit Ctrl+Alt+Del to escape BlockInput(1) anyways.

i can't see how shellexecute related with the solution of that problem.

and i literally didn't understand what are you trying to say with your second sentence.

may be in a simple way, i need a solution like what ctrl+alt+del does to blockinput function. some kind of override. but that override should work in another autoit script.

If you exit the script it will also remove BlockInput(1). Maybe set up parameters so you run mu.exe exit main script. From mu.exe call back main.exe with a parameter to start from. Just thinking outside the box!

2nd script (will be run by no1)

ProcessClose("1stscript.exe")

sleep(5000)

Local $PID = ProcessExists("1stscript.exe") ; Will return the PID or 0 if the process isn't found.

If $PID Then ProcessClose($PID)

i just need to disable input (blockinput) for 5 seconds not more not less for a specific process.

sometimes, that process can fail, so i can't use blockinput(0) in the end of that specific process. because of that i need a different solution. if i use that kind of code from another script:

blockinput(1)

sleep(5000)

blockinput(0)

this also blocks the main script too, while blockinput active main script functions are blocked too.

Not sure how this is help. Sorry, i couldn't see any connection with blockinput.

autoitaddicted,

I am having difficulty understanding your problem. If you use Run to execute your "mu.exe" file, the script continues once the app is launched - so I see no reason why a "process" "failing" would affect anything that happens later. :oops:

What are you running that requires BlockInput and the failure of which blocks the rest of the script from running? As this short snippet shows, Run does not halt the script:

ConsoleWrite("Input blocked at " & @SEC & @CRLF)
Run("notepad.exe", "")
ConsoleWrite("Continuing" & @CRLF)
Sleep(5000)
ConsoleWrite("Input unblocked at " & @SEC & @CRLF)

You see the "Continuing" appear immediately after Notepad opens and the second ConsoleWrite appears 5 secs later. :doh:

So if you want help - more details on what exactly is going on in your script please. :bye:

_GUICtrlToolbar_ClickButton($hToolbar, 41061)

This part is not working if there is another active blockinput from another script file.

autoitaddicted,

Obvious question: can you not combine the 2 scripts? No more problem then. :bye:

If not, have you thought about using some form of interscript communication so the second script can tell the first to unblock? You could use something as simple as an ini file, or just search for "+inter +script +communication" - there are many examples out there. My personal favourite is trancex's MailSlot. :oops:

You could try something with adlibRegister in the main program.

BlockInput(1)
Run("program")
AdlibRegister("checkProcess", 100)
Func checkProcess()
   Local $PID = ProcessExists("program")
   If $PID Then
      ProcessClose($PID)
      BlockInput(0)
      AdlibUnRegister("checkProcess")
   EndIf
EndFunc

so this just keeps checking to see if the second program is finished, and if it is, then it ends the blockInput.

You could do this-

Run this after you have compiled mu.exe

#include <winapi.au3>

$gg = GUICreate("funnytitle+[]765");no need to show this window, it'as just so you can receive a message

$WM = _WinAPI_RegisterWindowMessage("anotherfunnytitle+[]765"); get our own message number
GUIRegisterMsg($WM, "blocks")

msgbox(262144,$gg, $wm)
BlockInput(1)
sleep(9000);delay to show that block(1) is working
Run("mu.exe", "")

while 1
    sleep(90)
wend

func blocks($hW,$Msg,$lp)
    if $lp = 0 Then
        BlockInput(0)
        ;exit
    Else
        Blockinput(1)
    EndIf
EndFunc

Do something like this in mu.exe

#include <winapi.au3>
#include <sendmessage.au3>
$WH = WinGetHandle("funnytitle+[]765")
;MsgBox(262144,"handle = ",$WH,3)
$WM = _WinAPI_RegisterWindowMessage("anotherfunnytitle+[]765")
;MsgBox(262144,"$WM = ", $wm,3)
if $WH <> 0 then _SendMessage($WH,$WM,0)

But based on your first post the obvious way to do it is

blockinput(1)
sleep(5000)
blockinput(0)
run("mu.exe")

I assume though that the code you showed is not really what you want to do which is why I showed another possibility.

works like a charm THANK YOU SO MUCH
