Keyboard question

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Is there a way to prevent a specific key press to reach to a specific window? Here is what I need:

If Esc is pressed, it is passed on to the active window except if the active window is a specifc one. Instead, I want to pass on 0 to that specific window using ControlSend(). Somehow I have to prevent Esc reaching to that specific window, though.

Take a look at _IsPressed in the help file. You could do something like this (pseudo-code):

While WinActive("Window you're looking for")

   If _IsPressed("ESC key") Then <Do This>

WEnd

I leave it to you to fill in the gaps :)

Look at the help file for HotKeySet.


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.

Thanks for the suggestions, I will try to use them ... I was hoping for something like this:

BlockInput ( window title, pressed key, flag )

:)
