BlockInput Question

3 posts in this topic

Hi All

I have trawled the forums and cannot seem to find a definitive answer to my question.

I would like to use the BlockInput function to prevent users easily disrupting certain applications which are being deployed by limiting access via mouse / keyboard. I have created a .exe containing the following code:

BlockInput(1)

I want to run this and then deploy an application and then run the BlockInput(0) function to turn keyboard/ mouse input back on...however, this does not work.

I can get the following to work perfectly:

BlockInput(1)

"run some file or do something"

BlockInput(0)

Is it possible to run just the BlockInput(1) statement and have input suspended indefinitely (besides the Crtl, Alt, Del etc.), or have I misunderstood the documentation?

Many thanks

Arthur

It sounds like you are doing BlockInput(1) and exiting the script, expecting the block to remain.

The script that is doing the blocking must continue to run to maintain the block. Put the blocking script in a loop that will exit on some flag indicating when it should be released, like a file, registry entry, GUI action, etc.

AH! That makes sense now - many thanks for the reply
