<-MousePass-> designed for laptop fingerpads

27 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I wrote this little helper and really love it. It allows the mouse to pass-through the screen left-to-right and top-to-bottom.

Updated to ver 1.0.0.2

MousePass.exe

#Region ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI ****
#AutoIt3Wrapper_UseUpx=n
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Description=MousePass for laptops
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Fileversion=1.0.0.2
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Fileversion_AutoIncrement=p
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_LegalCopyright=By Valuater
#EndRegion ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI ****

If UBound(ProcessList(@ScriptName)) > 2 Then
    MsgBox(4096, "Error", "<-MousePass-> is already running.     ", 5)
    Exit 0
EndIf

$Height = @DesktopHeight - 1
$Width = @DesktopWidth - 1

;MsgBox(4096, $Height, $Width) ; for testing

$L_Adjust = 1
$R_Adjust = 2

$T_Adjust = 1
$B_Adjust = 2

$Left = 0 + $L_Adjust
$Right = $Width - $R_Adjust - 1

$Top = 0 + $T_Adjust
$Bottom = $Height - $B_Adjust

; HotKeySet("{ESC}", "Terminate"); this key is hit too often

TraySetToolTip("<-MousePass->")

If @Compiled = 1 And Not FileExists(@StartupCommonDir & "\MousePass.lnk") Then
    FileCreateShortcut(@ScriptDir & "\MousePass.exe", @StartupCommonDir & "\MousePass.lnk", @ScriptDir, "", "This is a <-MousePass-> link", "", "", "", @SW_SHOWNORMAL)
EndIf

While 1

    $x = MouseGetPos(0)
    $y = MouseGetPos(1)

    If ($x > $Width - 100) And ($y < 50) Then ContinueLoop 1 + 0 * Sleep(50) ; block top right coner
    If ($x < 50) And ($y > $Height - 50) Then ContinueLoop 1 + 0 * Sleep(50) ; block start button

    If $x <= 0 Then MouseMove($Right, $y, 0)
    If $x >= $Width Then MouseMove($Left, $y, 0)

    If $y <= 0 Then MouseMove($x, $Bottom, 0)
    If $y >= $Height Then MouseMove($x, $Top, 0)

    Sleep(50)

    ;ToolTip("x = " & $x & @CRLF & "y = " & $y, 10, 10) ; for testing

WEnd

Func Terminate()
    Exit 0
EndFunc   ;==>Terminate

ENJOY!!!

Already been done, but this ones quite nice! What I would like to see is a couple of areas where you can't pass the mouse through, mainly the top-right (for the cllose button) and next to the start button.

heres a simple way to implement it:

$Width = @DesktopWidth - 1

;MsgBox(4096, $Height, $Width) ; for testing

$L_Adjust = 1
$R_Adjust = 2

$T_Adjust = 1
$B_Adjust = 2

$Left = 0 + $L_Adjust
$Right = $Width - $R_Adjust - 1

$Top = 0 + $T_Adjust
$Bottom = $Height - $B_Adjust

HotKeySet("{ESC}", "Terminate")

TraySetToolTip("<-MousePass->")

While 1

    $x = MouseGetPos(0)
    $y = MouseGetPos(1)

    If ($x > $Width - 100) And ($y < 100) Then ContinueLoop 1 + 0 * Sleep(50)

    If $x <= 0 Then MouseMove($Right, $y, 0)
    If $x >= $Width Then MouseMove($Left, $y, 0)

    If $y <= 0 Then MouseMove($x, $Bottom, 0)
    If $y >= $Height Then MouseMove($x, $Top, 0)

Uh oh, can't get to my second monitor, may want to fix that.

If someone can get me details on how to make this work on more than one screen I'll be happy to try and implement it... This is kinda cool :D

I know it's for a laptop, but you can have multiple monitors on laptops as well.

Thank you very much, interesting utility, I will use it for sure. :D

BTW: :huggles: For those of you who are a bit hamfisted like me and find it difficult to balance the pointer on the bottom edge to get access to the system tray

you may wish to add the following line of code.

If ($x > $Width - 100) And ($y > $Height - 50) Then ContinueLoop 1 + 0 * Sleep(50) ; block SystemTray

Also, a while back I recall seeing on here a thread where someone supplied a way to determine the location of the Taskbar for those who have the taskbar on the side instead of the bottom, that will need to be taken into account for the non-default taskbar location when blocking the Start or SystemTray.

Regards,DeMo.

GerrOrneq,

How to find the taskbar (and whether it is hidden or not): :D

ConsoleWrite(Find_Taskbar() & @CRLF)

Func Find_Taskbar()

    ; Find taskbar
    Local $iPrevMode = AutoItSetOption("WinTitleMatchMode", 4)
    Local $aTaskBar_Pos = WinGetPos("classname=Shell_TrayWnd")
    AutoItSetOption("WinTitleMatchMode", $iPrevMode)

    ; If error in finding taskbar
    If Not IsArray($aTaskBar_Pos) Then Return SetError(1, 0, "")

    ; Determine position of taskbar
    If $aTaskBar_Pos[1] > 0 Then
        ; Taskbar at BOTTOM
        If $aTaskBar_Pos[1] > @DesktopHeight - $aTaskBar_Pos[3] Then
            Return "Bottom Hidden"
        Else
            Return "Bottom"
        EndIf
    ElseIf $aTaskBar_Pos[0] > 0 Then
        ; Taskbar at RIGHT
        If $aTaskBar_Pos[0] > @DesktopWidth - $aTaskBar_Pos[2] Then
            Return "Right Hidden"
        Else
            Return "Right"
        EndIf
    ElseIf $aTaskBar_Pos[2] = @DesktopWidth Then
        ; Taskbar at TOP
        If $aTaskBar_Pos[1] < 0 Then
            Return "Top Hidden"
        Else
            Return "Top"
        EndIf
    ElseIf $aTaskBar_Pos[3] = @DesktopHeight Then
        ; Taskbar at LEFT
        If $aTaskBar_Pos[0] < 0 Then
            Return "Left Hidden"
        Else
            Return "Left"
        EndIf
    EndIf

EndFunc

I like this, I really do =]

And I was also hoping, is it possible that you can make this launch on start-up?

Put it (or a shortcut to it) in the startup folder.
