Keeping my GUI not focused


Recommended Posts

Hello All,

A big thanks to Melba, wraithdu and info (for persistence). I was trying to find a way to keey the virtual keyboard window in non-active state yet accept the clicks and send the same to the active window.

PS: got this working without the need for trapping mouse events. just create the window and we are through.

GUICreate($MainGUITitle, 722, 194, 300, 300, -1, BitOR($WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW, $WS_EX_TOPMOST, $_NOACTIVATE))

PPS: using this code its possible to write an Anti-Keylogger based Virtual Keyboard i.e. a Virtual Keyboard whose keystrokes are not recognized by any of the available keylogging methods, whether its a kernel based keylogger or hooks in user-space.

regards

hey,

thanks for the awesome script, its exactly what i was looking for!

I just habe the problem that after the First Button press it Always sends again the First Symbol.

so when i press "1" and afterwards "2", the output is "112"

why this happens? 

only change i made is uncomment $WS_EX_NOACTIVATE because i get an Error that im not allowed to change constants

Hi,

This resurrected thread has been reported as a script for a possible "keylogger" and as such going against the forum rules. However, the scripts within it deal solely with the creation of a virtual keyboard rather than looking at actions using the real key board and so I do not believe that any of them fall into this category.  As such I am happy for the thread to remain open.
