Lock mouse to a Window

Recommended Posts


Hi All,

During my script I need to unblock user input to allow the user to type in some text into a GUI box and click on the OK button.  The problem with this is that I cannot find a way to unlock onto this GUI Box.  I want to prevent the user from being able to put this box into the background and mess with whatever's happening behind.

I'm using the standard AutoIt Gui to create the window and BlockInputEx(1) for the blocking.

Any ideas?

Hi, maybe something like this?

_MouseTrap($WinCoords[0] + 612, $WinCoords[1] + 327, $WinCoords[0] + 720, $WinCoords[1] + 330)

That's what i use in one of my things, to keep the mouse within a specified rectangle i need.
