AutoIt mouse position and automation

4 posts in this topic

Hi folks

I'm building an app to automate logging into a website, entering various search criteria, performing searches etc.

So far I've been able to...

1) Login

Func Login()
    MouseClick("left", 981, 202)
    Send($username)
    MouseClick("left", 981, 240)
    Send($password)
    MouseClick("left", 981,290)
EndFunc

2) Enter Search criteria

Func Search()
MouseClick("left", 300, 300)
Send($searchCriteria)
MouseClick("left", 300, 420)
EndFunc

I've embedded a browser in a GUI and locked the GUI so it cannot be moved.

Example:

$oIE = _IECreateEmbedded()
GUICreate("gui", 1200, 720, 5, 5)
GUICtrlCreatePic('bg.bmp', 0, 0, 1200, 720)
GuiCtrlSetState(-1,$GUI_DISABLE)
GUISetFont(9, 1, 3, "verdana")

$GUIActiveX = GUICtrlCreateObj($oIE, 10, 10, 1180, 600)

It works on my PC but my fear is that it won't be portable. What if another user has a different screen resolution from me? is x=981, y=240 981 in from the GUI or from the edge of my screen? I tried

_IEFormGetObjByName
but that only allowed me to enter my credentials, not actually log in.

Some advice on the best way to do this would be very much appreciated :)

See PixelCoordMode in the Help file. Also, there are better ways to send data to a web page, search thru the forum for examples, and read thru the Help file again, <b>IE Management</b> in the <b>User Defined Function Reference </b>section<b>.<br></b>

Thanks somdcomputerguy.

I've been using the tool in AutoIt AU3Info to capture the co-ordinates. Can you tell me if that is the absolute position or the position from the top and left of the GUI?

Thanks :)

*EDIT* - just noticed you can choose the setting in the tool itself :)

In the Options menu of AU3Info, you can select the coord mode, which will dictate what kind of coords are being returned by the tool. Set PixelCoordMode accordingly in your script.<br><br>Edit: just noticed you noticed..<br>
