Clicking at position x-y in a minimized window

5 posts in this topic

I have searched these forums for a view days now and the only example i can find doesn't work or need some tweaking.

Basically i need a function/example on how to send a "mouseDown" and a "mouseUp" function call to a window that doesn't have focus(or even minimized)? I want to send mouse events to a specific window while i use my mouse on different tasks....Is that possible?

It seems this function should work, but it doesn't(atleast for me it does nothing):

;===============================================================================
;
; Function Name: _MouseClickPlus()
; Version added: 0.1
; Description: Sends a click to window
; minimized.
; Parameter(s): $Window = Title of the window to send click to
; $Button = "left" or "right" mouse button
; $X = X coordinate
; $Y = Y coordinate
; $Clicks = Number of clicks to send
; Remarks: You MUST be in "MouseCoordMode" 0 to use this without bugs.

;===============================================================================
Func _MouseClickPlus($Window, $Button = "left", $X = "", $Y = "", $Clicks = 1)
    MsgBox(1, "", "112333")
    Local $MK_LBUTTON = 0x0001
    Local $WM_LBUTTONDOWN = 0x0201
    Local $WM_LBUTTONUP = 0x0202

    Local $MK_RBUTTON = 0x0002
    Local $WM_RBUTTONDOWN = 0x0204
    Local $WM_RBUTTONUP = 0x0205

    Local $WM_MOUSEMOVE = 0x0200

    Local $i = 0

    Select
        Case $Button = "left"
            $Button = $MK_LBUTTON
            $ButtonDown = $WM_LBUTTONDOWN
            $ButtonUp = $WM_LBUTTONUP
        Case $Button = "right"
            $Button = $MK_RBUTTON
            $ButtonDown = $WM_RBUTTONDOWN
            $ButtonUp = $WM_RBUTTONUP
    EndSelect

    If $X = "" Or $Y = "" Then
        $MouseCoord = MouseGetPos()
        $X = $MouseCoord[0]
        $Y = $MouseCoord[1]
    EndIf

    For $i = 1 To $Clicks
        DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "SendMessage", _
                "hwnd", WinGetHandle($Window), _
                "int", $WM_MOUSEMOVE, _
                "int", 0, _
                "long", _MakeLong($X, $Y))

        DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "SendMessage", _
                "hwnd", WinGetHandle($Window), _
                "int", $ButtonDown, _
                "int", $Button, _
                "long", _MakeLong($X, $Y))

        DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "SendMessage", _
                "hwnd", WinGetHandle($Window), _
                "int", $ButtonUp, _
                "int", $Button, _
                "long", _MakeLong($X, $Y))
    Next
EndFunc  ;==>_MouseClickPlus

Func _MakeLong($LoWord, $HiWord)
    Return BitOR($HiWord * 0x10000, BitAND($LoWord, 0xFFFF))
EndFunc  ;==>_MakeLong

As I understand it, this function is written mainly for games where everything happens in its own window (with no controls). For the next example it should work. Try it.

#Include <WinAPI.au3>

Global Const $WM_LBUTTONDOWN = 0x0201

GUICreate('MyGUI', 400, 400)
GUIRegisterMsg($WM_LBUTTONDOWN, 'WM_LBUTTONDOWN')
GUISetState()

Do
Until GUIGetMsg() = -3

Func WM_LBUTTONDOWN($hWnd, $iMsg, $wParam, $lParam)

    Local $hDC = _WinAPI_GetDC($hWnd)

    For $i = -3 To 3
        For $j = -3 To 3
            DllCall('gdi32.dll', 'int', 'SetPixelV', 'hwnd', $hDC, 'int', _WinAPI_LoWord($lParam) + $i, 'int', _WinAPI_HiWord($lParam) + $j, 'dword', 0x0000FF)
        Next
    Next
    _WinAPI_ReleaseDC($hWnd, $hDC)
    Return 0
EndFunc   ;==>WM_LBUTTONDOWN

But for the MS Paint (for example) that will not work. Here you should replace

WinGetHandle($Window)

to

ControlGetHandle(WinGetHandle($Window), '', '[CLASS:Afx:1000000:8;INSTANCE:1]')

Meaning understood?

In which window you want to click? Post screenshot of it.

Actually it is for a game....I'm trying to automate walking in the game by holding the middle-mouse button and panning left or right. While that is taking place i want the mouse free to let me do other tasks. I need some sort of way of sending mouse calls to an inactive window in the same way as you can send keys to it(like Autohotkey).

regards.
