How to make an exception to BlockInput?

Recommended Posts

Problem: I have a script running which uses send and mouseclick. In order to prevent users from messing up, I use blockinput.

But I want to allow the user to stop or interrupt the script in a controlled way, lets say by a hotkey.

An Idea anybody?

CTRL-ALT-DEL will re-enable user input and then they will be able to stop script using any hotkey you wish to setup.

I know that, but I have tried. This way, generated input can get lost. Code for testing:

HotKeySet("x", "_hotkeytest")
BlockInput(1)

Run("Notepad.exe", "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)
For $i = 1 To 500
    send($i & " " )
    Sleep(100)
Next
Func _hotkeytest()
    MsgBox(0,"Debug", "Ebbeh!")
EndFunc
