Recommended Posts

Hello Autoers

i recently start to to use autoit script for may automat, and i'd like to ask some thing about IT

I just begin to build my script with mouse "klicking" and "get color" and it ended so well, and i'd like to improve it even better

this is my question

* while i run my script that keep running on and on, i'd like to open some other program to keep me from getting borred, "you know like chat, brows.., mail, ect...ect"but when i do that my script always take control of my mouse and my keyboard "darn eqois script i'd like to say ..."

Well is there any way can i do that , so the cript will run independently until i say stop and while the script running i too can free from do what i's like to do, and the script don't bother me as well

can someone tell me a way to do that "with simple english please.. LOL.."

If you use the MouseClick function, AutoIt will always take over your cursor. Look at the ControlClick function if you want to to use the cursor normally, although you might need to activate the target window which rather defeats the object of the exercise. :x

But perhaps you are using your script in a game when you get bored and want to do something else? :P

If so, please read this? :shifty:
