Array problem

Recommended Posts

I have been using autoit (AutoIt v3 on Windows 7, x64) for about 15 minutes so probably I am doing some really silly error, but anyways:

$info = GUIGetCursorInfo() ; this function should return an array right?
$x = $info[0]
$y = $info[1]

$str = StringFormat("x = %d\ny = %d\n", $x, $y)

MsgBox ( 0, "Mouse Position", $str) ; print cursor x,y

I get this error:

C:\Users\Pietro\Projects\autoit\try.au3 (3) : ==> Subscript used with non-Array variable.:
$x = $info[0]
$x = $info^ ERROR
>Exit code: 1    Time: 0.232

How is this possible? :blink:


This works:

$info = MouseGetPos()

$x = $info[0]
$y = $info[1]

$str = StringFormat("x = %d\ny = %d\n", $x, $y)

MsgBox ( 0, "Mouse Position", $str)

still, I don't get why the other one doesn't ;)

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :blink:

How is this possible?

A couple of possible reasons from the Help file for GUIGetCursorInfo to fail:

- "The mouse cursor position is successful only on an window created by a GUICreate"

- "When no winhandle it will be successful if the GUI Windows is active"

So I would strongly suggest that you add your GUI handle as the parameter - the handle is the value returned by GUICreate.

If you still do not get an aray returned, please post your code so we can delve deeper! ;)


P.S. When you post code please use Code tags. Put [autoit ] before and [/autoit ] after your posted code (but omit the trailing space - it is only there so the tags display here). Or press the blue button just under the BOLD toolbar button. :P
