Mousetrap not working if window title bar click

3 posts in this topic

G'day everyone

I'm trying to write a script with which I can ensure that when I move a window up and down, it does not move to the side, even if my mouse hand is shaky. For this I have set up a mousetrap of 3 pixels wide and the height of the entire screen, which is activated when the user presses Ctrl and clicks-and-drags.

The mousetrap works great, except when it should :-). When I Ctrl+click and drag, the mousetrap works. But when I Ctrl+click on a window's window bar, the mousetrap does not work... and that is precisely when I *want* it to work.

Here's the script so far:

#Include <Misc.au3>

While 1
Sleep ("100")
If _IsPressed ("11") Then
If _IsPressed ("01") Then

$mousepos = MouseGetPos() ; so [0] = x, [1] = y
$mousecol1 = $mousepos[0] - 1
$mousecol2 = $mousepos[0] + 1
$screenheight = @DesktopHeight
_MouseTrap($mousecol1, 0, $mousecol2 , $screenheight)

$i = 1
While $i = 1
Sleep ("100")
If NOT _IsPressed ("11") Then
_MouseTrap()
$i = 0
ElseIf NOT _IsPressed ("01") Then
_MouseTrap()
$i = 0
EndIf
WEnd

EndIf
EndIf
WEnd

Can anyone help me solve this problem?

Thanks

Samuel

Is this a GUI that you're creating in AutoIt? If so, when you click on the title bar of an AI window, or move an AI window, the script will freeze. So, unfortunately it won't work for your own script, unless you use 2 different scripts one controlling the mouse the other creating the GUI.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

No, it's for moving normal windows in Microsoft Windows. I don't get freezes. The mousetrap simply does not work when I try it on a window (e.g. my browser window or my word processor window).
