Keep workstation from being used

3 posts in this topic

Sometimes when I run a script that automates a lot of tasks I forget about it, and then I open a program. Then AutoIt is typing and hitting menus which ruins everything because the order of operations is now somewhere in the middle.

Is there a way to lock the keyboard and mouse operations to keep the workstation from being used except for exiting the script from the systray?

Thanks,

Doug

Read the helpfile on BlockInput...

...but read the entire page before using it in your script.

If you are careful when you write your scripts, you can have them activate the window of interest before each key or blocks of keys are sent. It is not foolproof, but scripts can be made to be somewhat tolerant of user interruptions.

hope this helps...

I use a lot of Alt key combinations for the menus.

I run them on a mix of SP1 and SP2 computers, so I will be careful and test.

Thanks for the help!
