Record a mouse click to push PLAY button

Recommended Posts

Hi!

I'm totally new to AutoIt.

I'm not even sure yet that AutoIt is my best option:

What I need is a script that records clicking on a certain program's PLAY button.

This script is to be used as executable by different users on different PCs (most of them have windows XP).

The problem is that every user may have this program opened on a different location on his screen, or maybe even minimized to the bottom of his screen.

How can the script find the specific program's window, look for the PLAY button and press it?

Thanks a lot in advance,

Roni

Thank you Wakillon!

Since I'm just a beginning beginner, it would really help a lot if you might have any piece of code for reference?

I would really really appreciate it...

Anyway I'll start to try coding with using Window InfoTool and ControlClick as you suggested - thanks a lot :-)

It could be something like that :

; You must Set $_Title, $_Text and ControlID.

WinWait ( $_Title, $_Text )
WinActivate ( $_Title, $_Text )
ControlClick ( $_Title, $_Text, "Play" )

No need to record anything, no need to know window coordinates !

@roni - Remember, just about every function in the Helpfile has example code with it.
