Block user Input on Window

Recommended Posts

Reinhardt1julian

Hi,

I want to know if there is a way, that the user can't do anything on my window, but hotkeys. So, i want them to not be able to scroll scrolling bars or slide sliders, but they should be able to press a hotkey, and the rest of the computer should  work normally. That's why I don't want to use BlockInput

GUICtrlSetState ( controlID, $GUI_DISABLE), use that for all of your controls and they won't be able to use them. Although, if you have controls they can't use, what's the point of having the controls in the first place?


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

      Hello...

      How i can write data from txt to +3 Input?
      Example:
      In txt i have:
      Michael XYZ, 21, Boston
      Olex Marshal, 17, Boston
      Alex XYZ, 19, Boston
       
      And now i want load that data to input in autoit. 

      Name          y.o          city
      [ Input1]  [Input2] [Input3]
      [ Input4]  [Input5] [Input6]
      [ Input7]  [Input8] [Input9]
       
      After load should be:
      Name               y.o            city
      [Michael XYZ]      [21]     [Boston]
      [ Olex Marshal]  [17]      [Boston]
      [ Alex XYZ]           [19]      [Boston]
       
      FileOpen("Test.txt",0)                          $aas = GUICtrlSetData($Input1, FileReadLine("Test.txt",1))             FileClose("Test.txt") But its wrong. ofcourse its load all to input 1. So now how do you load this data directly into each input separately? The comma stop sign is here. Each line is a new person

      Good morning everyone

      I was playing a little bit with "Screen Capture" UDF, and I was trying to make a "Window" capture, but, since I made a GUI which through I fire the event "Capture", my GUI is captured as well, and I don't want to
      This is the line of code that makes the capture:
       
      _ScreenCapture_CaptureWnd($strScreenCaptureFileName, $objActiveWindow, 0, 0, -1, -1, False) And these are the lines of code which select the "active" window:
       
      Local $objCurrentWindow = 9999 If _IsPressed("01") Then $objCurrentWindow = WinGetHandle("[ACTIVE]") If $objCurrentWindow <> $objMyGUI Then $objActiveWindow = $objCurrentWindow EndIf EndIf Sorry If I made stupid mistakes
      Thanks in advance.

      Here is a function that will return a 2D array of visible windows.  You will notice that windows "Start" and "Program Manager"  windows will always be in the array.  The array returns the title of the window, the window handle, the PID of the process associated with the window, the process name associated with the window, the window's position, and the window's dimension,  Please see comments in the code about the numbers returned about the window's position.
       
      #include <Array.au3> #include <Process.au3> ;Get a list of visable windows with titles. $aWindows = _GetVisibleWindows() _ArrayDisplay($aWindows) Func _GetVisibleWindows() ;Retrieve a list of windows. Local $aWinList = WinList() If Not IsArray($aWinList) Then Return SetError(0, 0, 0) ;Loop through the array deleting no title or invisable windows.
