Hi All,

I am writing a piece of software using VB .net for Pocket PC and I want to disable the keyboard programatically. Does anyone know if this can be done and if so how?

Thanks in advance.

Following is other way.. just try out

Disable mouse and keyboard
Use BlockInput procedure to lock keyboard and mouse. This procedure with True parameter disables manipulators and with False parameter enables them.

procedure BlockInput(ABlockInput : boolean); stdcall; external 'USER32.DLL';
...
procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  BlockInput(True);
  Sleep(5000);
  BlockInput(False);
end;
