Need Right Mouse Button when firing IE element onMouseDown event

Recommended Posts

After performing an _IEAttach and locating a button on the form,

the following code works great when firing a left mouse button onmousedown event.


I need the right mouse active when firing the onmousedown event. This requires eventProperties to be sent as a second parameter. Is this supported? If so, what is the equivilent AutoIt code for the first two lines below?

;NameValueCollection eventProperties = new NameValueCollection();

;eventProperties.Add("button", "2");

$o_Btn.FireEvent("onmousedown", eventProperties);

I expect something like this to work:

$oEvt = $oIE.document.createEventObject("MouseEvent")
$oEvt.button = 2
$o_Btn.fireEvent("onmousedown", $oEvt)

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?

I tried the example suggestion and several variations with no success. No errors are being reported but no action is occurring either.
