tkinter global hotkeys?
im trying to expand off of my previous idea about text messaging...
im trying to make a script so that, whenever a key is pressed or the mouse is moved, it will send a text message to my cell phone...
ive got the text message part worked out but im having problems with tkinter
i know its possible to just make a frame large enough to cover the entire desktop, and frames do allow you to bind mouse movements and keys, but i would rather have the frame not visible...
is this possible in tkinter?
some sort of widget thats not visible, and doesnt interfere with any normal windows activities, but can tell where the mouse is at, and weather keys are being pressed..
ahah, kinda far fetched but i just thought id ask
p.s. im trying to make a crude security program for my computer, ill post the script (along with the aim instant messaging one) if it works out
