Hey ROB ,

Hope you are doing great with the new s+. Can i trouble you for some clues on what i am trying please ?

Once i draw a gesture I want to give an effect of disabling keyboard and mouse in my lappy so whatever I type or click has no effect to the window including any gesture further by S+ except the gesture to enable /allow the keyboard and mouse inputs back by drawing another gesture.

I thought i could achieve this by doing a "acInputBox" and let the box accept whatever i type and click and yes of course it didn't work for me. Can you please hint me on how to achieve this with S+

acConsumePhysicalInput(1) --Consume ALL physical input

acConsumePhysicalInput(0) --Allow physical input

Note, however, and I cannot stress this enough:

Once you call acConsumePhysicalInput(1), absolutely ALL mouse and keyboard input will be consumed by S+, meaning you will have NO ability to draw another gesture or press any key strokes!!

Use this with caution! Be certain you've thought it all through before that first call in your script. Also, I highly recommend that you save any open files in case you have to power off the computer, if something is wrong in your script and acConsumePhysicalInput(0) never gets called.

I find it's best to use these together in a SINGLE script, meaning something like this:
(move the mouse via S+, like acMoveMouse)
(click the mouse via S+, like acMouseClick)
(send some keystrokes via S+, like acSendKeys)
