Disable input while Macro runs?

Is there a way to disable keyboard and mouseclick input while a macro is running?

 

Sometimes it is not obvious to my users that a macro is running and they start to enter text before it is done, resulting in data being put into the wrong fields, etc.

 

There also needs to be some kind of failsafe that re-enables them if the macro fails or is stopped so users aren't stuck with a dumb PC.

 

 

Thanks!

 

edit- It would be fantastic if there was some way to buffer the input instead! :-)

Not yet.

One solution is to use the Text Box Display command to tell the user to wait for a moment. The macro can control when the text box is displayed and when it is removed.
