New to the program - Moving mouse on key press

4 posts in this topic

I downloaded the program this morning and did a bit of messing about with it. I was attempting to create a script that when I press a certain key, the cursor on screen will jump to a set position.

I was using the functions HotKeySet and MouseMove, but no matter what I did it was always refusing to run the program.

I'm away from my computer with it installed atm so I can't copy my attempts, so just if anyone could offer some useful advice of how the scripting should look would be a great help =]

Thanks in advance

Muckytears,

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :D

That was your one-time use of the "not at my machine now" excuse for not posting your coding attempt! :)

This works for me - I have suggested where I think you might have had a problem: :rip:

; Set the HotKeys
HotKeySet("a", "MoveMouse")   ; Pressing "a" moves the mouse
HotKeySet("{ESC}", "On_Exit") ; Pressing ESCAPE exits the script

; Use an infinite loop to keep the script alive - I bet this is what you did not have in your version ;)
While 1
    Sleep(10)
WEnd

Func MoveMouse()
    MouseMove(100, 100) ; Move the mouse to 100, 100
EndFunc

Func On_Exit()
    Exit
EndFunc

Please ask if you have any questions. :oops:

ah massive thanks for this, and i really was away from my computer xD I had to get off to college so I didn't have time to ask it at home.

Wasn't too far off but yeah I didn't have the loop in it :D

also creepy that you used point 100,100 because that's the point that I was testing it with this morning xD

Nice to see the remote debugging skills are still up to scratch! :oops:

Enjoy your coding in AutoIt. :D
