How do I detect application idle time?

Dear All,

Can you please help me out in detecting the application idle time.

I would like to lock the application if it is idle for more that 10 minutes.

FYI - I have already tried application.idl e event.

Thanks and Regards,

Peri

How are you determining "idle" time?

What do you guys think about resetting a timer each time a key is
pressed or mouse is moved ( low priority thread) ?
On timer tick at 10 minutes just lock the application.

Thanks,
Naren.

Call the function every n seconds. The time is related to all applications,
not only to your application.

I want to log the user out when there has been a period of inactivity in the application. The key here is inactivity of the application, not the system. I know that you can retrieve the inactivity of the system via GetLastInputInfo. That's not what I want - I want inactivity of the application. Thanks.

Hi, I have recently used the Microsoft that will detect idle time coding on my Access database and it works fine as long as you do not add any data or move from one form to another. As soon as you do that, when idling code kicks, an error message from Microsoft "Microsoft has encountered a problem and needs to close" comes up. Do you have...
