Locking Display and Keyboard

Locking Display and Keyboard

(OP)
Hallo

I have to write a program that locks the display and/or
the keyboard so that input from users cannot be possible.
(Reenabling is done by remote). I have managed the mouse
so far but it's not enough.
Any suggestions are welcomed.
Thank you in anticipation.

RE: Locking Display and Keyboard

You might try the BlockInput API


Private Declare Function BlockInput Lib "user32" (ByVal fBlock As Long) As Long

'block the mouse and keyboard input
 BlockInput True

'unblock the mouse and keyboard input
BlockInput False


Good Luck
