InputBox

How can one make a InputBox keep focus, even if the user clicks on a different window?

See here: http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=13820

Edit: boils down to making your own GUI version of an inputbox and using WS_EX_TOPMOST

GUICreate("PopUP", 191, 85, -1, -1, $WS_DLGFRAME, $WS_EX_TOPMOST)

[see gafrost's code in the link above]

thanks. I was hoping I wouldn'r have to use that route, but it looks like it is my only option.

That's an oxymoron for sure. another option would be to have another compiled script executed with Run() before the inputbox is displayed. That will give you the multi-threaded approach that you're looking for. Example

Code 1

Run('"Code 2.exe"')
InputBox("YOU WILL FILL THIS OUT","I'm not going anywhere until you cancel or submit me")

Code 2

Opt("WinTitleMatchMode",4)
WinWait("YOU WILL FILL THIS OUT")
WinSetOnTop("YOU WILL FILL THIS OUT","",1)
While WinExists("YOU WILL FILL THIS OUT")
If WinExists("YOU WILL FILL THIS OUT") And WinGetTitle("active") <> "YOU WILL FILL THIS OUT" Then WinActivate("YOU WILL FILL THIS OUT")
WEnd

there's another option for you that doesn't involve a new gui

I can make it with a GUI, but I was simply hoping for a way to have the input box be forced to keep it's focus. It's no biggy.
