how to detect when user has pressed a key

5 posts in this topic

Im building a moniter sleeper program. This is my code so far...

Func _Mononoff()
Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 4)
$hwnd = WinGetHandle("classname=Progman")
$user32 = DllOpen("user32.dll")
Global Const $lciWM_SYSCommand = 274
Global Const $lciSC_MonitorPower = 61808
Global Const $lciPower_Off = 2
Global Const $lciPower_On = -1
DllCall($user32, "int", "SendMessage", "hwnd", $hwnd, "int", $lciWM_SYSCommand, "int", $lciSC_MonitorPower, "int", $lciPower_Off)
Sleep(90000)

endfunc




_mononoff()

The problem is, the moniter is activated when the user presses a key but the program is still running. I need the program to be able to tell when the user presses the key or moves the mouse so it can exit. I have no idea how to go about doing this. I cant find much info in the help file about that.

Could anyone give me an example of the code?

thx

An optimist says that giving someone power DOESN'T immediately turn them into a sadist. A pessimist says that giving someone power doesn't IMMEDIATELY turn them into a sadist.

My version i guess...i use it in school sometimes..

Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 4)
Opt("TrayMenuMode", 1)
Opt("TrayOnEventMode", 1)

Global Const $lciWM_SYSCommand = 274
Global Const $lciSC_MonitorPower = 61808
Global Const $lciPower_Off = 2
Global Const $lciPower_On = -1
Global $Msg = "Idle"

HotKeySet("^!o", "_On")
HotKeySet("^!f", "_Off")
HotKeySet("^!i", "_Idle")
HotKeySet("^!e", "_Bye")

$menu = TrayCreateMenu("Help")
$on = TrayCreateItem("Monitor On" & @TAB & "Ctrl+Alt+O", $menu)
$off = TrayCreateItem("Monitor Off" & @TAB & "Ctrl+Alt+F", $menu)
$idle = TrayCreateItem("Monitor Idle" & @TAB & "Ctrl+Alt+I", $menu)
$Quititem = TrayCreateItem("Exit" & @TAB & "Ctrl+Alt+E", $menu)
$hwnd = WinGetHandle("classname=Progman")
$user32 = DllOpen("user32.dll")

While 1
    Sleep(1)
WEnd

Func _On()
    $Msg = "On"
    While $Msg = "On"
        DllCall($user32, "int", "SendMessage", "hwnd", $hwnd, "int", $lciWM_SYSCommand, "int", $lciSC_MonitorPower, "int", $lciPower_On)
        Sleep(1)
    WEnd
EndFunc   ;==>_On
Func _Off()
    $Msg = "Off"
    While $Msg = "Off"
        DllCall($user32, "int", "SendMessage", "hwnd", $hwnd, "int", $lciWM_SYSCommand, "int", $lciSC_MonitorPower, "int", $lciPower_Off)
        Sleep(1)
    WEnd
EndFunc   ;==>_Off
Func _Idle()
    $Msg = "Idle"
EndFunc   ;==>_Idle
Func _Bye()
    $Msg = "Idle"
    DllClose($user32)
    Exit
EndFunc   ;==>_Bye
