Script speed

7 posts in this topic

Hi there, before you guys start calling me noob and what not, just know that I recently dled this program, and have no prior experience.

So anyways, in my script I typed this in:

MouseClick("Left",173,353,2,10)

I thought the 10 in that command is supposed to represent the speed. I assumed that's the delay? So once I start the script, it will wait 10 seconds, then click the set coordinate. However I was wrong, putting in the speed didn't change anything. So basically what I'm asking is, how do I put a delay on commands?

Thanks in advance!

two things to help you..

1 - Read the help and search on it before posting, many newcomers ask things that already are described in the help file... see also the examples and try to understan.. if this is hard to do, then ask :huh2: we happily help those who show an effort..

2 - Try the things before you ask... if you put in a script MouseClick("Left",173,353,2,10) and run it, then change 10 to 1 MouseClick("Left",173,353,2,1) and run it again, then you change 1 to 0 MouseClick("Left",173,353,2,0) and run that too, you will see the difference...

Sorry about that, in the help file, all I looked at was the basic scripting. Thanks for all your help guys! It's really greatly appreciated! :huh2:

Welcome to the Forum, dukette. The help file is great, with examples code for all the AutoIt functions. There's online copies too, the links are in my sig, and tutorials on YouTube. Good luck with your project.
