LockScreen Property


set the lockScreen to <boolean> Applies to global


The lockScreen property controls how the screen is updated. When the lockScreen property is true, the image currently displayed on the screen is not modified until the screen is unlocked or the script currently being executed ends. The lockScreen property is automatically set to false when an idle message is sent. Therefore this property can be changed only within the scope of a script. You can use the lockScreen property to


Create a bitmap named "test" and a button with the following script: on mouseUp set the lockScreen to true hide bitmap "test" wait 5 seconds show bitmap "test" set the lockScreen to false end mouseUp When you click on the button, the bitmap "test" does not disappear, because the screen was locked during the time the bitmap was hidden. Now return to the script and change the second line to read: set the lockScreen to false
