Can I disable mouse/keyboard control?

6 posts in this topic

Howdy.

I've just created my first script in Autoit(thanks to those that helped me get over the hump!).

Now i'm getting feedback that because the user could start typing or moving their mouse and disrupt the script, it's not good enough.

Is there a way to disable mouse/keyboard control for the execution of my script?

Thanks!

Look in the helpfile for BlockInput

It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?

BlockInput ( flag )

1=Disable user input

0=Enable user input

so put BlockInput(1) at the beggining of your script and

BlockInput(0) at the end.

search the help file for a better explanation if needed. :whistle:

one thing to watch for (you probably would have figured this for yourself, but i didn't when i first used it) be careful if you have any error trapping, or any other kind of conditional early termination that you BlockInput(0) before you Exit. Also, in the event that you are working on script, or debugging later, and you run into a situation where input is blocked and you need to unblock it (like a logic error causes infinite loop while input blocked) press control alt delete (i've personally had to do it on XP and 2k, don't know if it works on other OS's) once you control alt delete, it unblocks inputs automatically, just wanted to tell you that so you don't get stuck rebooting, or end tasking your script unnecessarily.
