WM 5.0+ Hardware Slide To Keyboard Lock / Unlock

    I present the program, albeit of rare applicability, but of undoubted utility: locking / unlocking the keyboard by the movement of the hardware slider. Accordingly, it will work only where it is, and there is no touch screen (otherwise I would advise S2U2). And such devices still remained, for example, the Toshiba G500, and maybe some others.

    The SlideMonitor operation algorithm is very simple, the program installs a key change handler FilpEnablein a branch HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel\Flip(which is updated by the OS to change the position of the slider) and performs the indicated actions.

    The configuration of SlideMonitor itself is located in the registry (it will be created at the first start) in the branch HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\sic\SlideActions, by default the path to the above key and several other parameters are written there (0 - off, 1 - on):

    Lock- lock the keyboard by closing the
    UnLock slider - unlock by opening
    HangUp - hang up by closing
    EndData - interrupt data connection by closing

    By default, only Lock / Unlock is set.

    Accordingly, the sources (assembled under VS 2008, SmartDevices, WM 5.0 SDK) and the binary and the necessary libraries (in theory should be present in the system).
