wxPython clipboard

P: n/a
Hi all,

I'm thinking about coding a free version of this software:
http://www.pitrinec.com/pkindex.htm

I would use wxPython and wx.Clipboard class (hoping to be able to make
it cross-platform)

The software above detects macros you code in any Windows active window
and replaces them with a text: something like you write "/ff" and he
pastes "Feel free to call us back for whatever questions you might
have".

This kind of softwares are very usefull in a call-centre environment
(where I'm currently working).

The thing is I'm thinking about the best approach (in terms of CPU
resources) to detect the macro. Not sure how keyloggers work but I
suspect I could run a service that compares everything beign written in
the active window with the macros I saved in the software
configuration.

Could you please give me some advice on the best approach to solve this
problem?

Thanks a lot,
Lorenzo

Ok well you should look at this module

I then you could take frequent snapshots and use and OCR to find your
stuff. Then use the above library to type to the window.

Ok the problem on Windows looks like solved but still I would have to
check if Windows Scripting Host is enabled.

Anyway I'll keep u updated
