Simple mouse and hotkey script query for first time user

Recommended Posts


Hi all,

Firstly I'd like to say I am really liking the interface & support of autoIT so far, as I picked it up about an hour ago.

What I am looking for is a script to simply perform a series of mouse clicks (with delays), and map that to a secondary mouse button, to be used in a full-screen environment such as a game.

Searching the forums I've found:

which could've been useful but I received the following error

>Exit code: 1 Time: 0.229

>"C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\SciTE\..\autoit3.exe" /ErrorStdOut "C:\Users\windoze\Documents\My Games\scripts\scriptz.au3"  
C:\Users\windoze\Documents\My Games\scripts\scriptz.au3 (4) : ==> Cannot parse #include.:
#include GUIConstantsEx.au3
>Exit code: 1   Time: 0.229

Which seems to indicate it can't find this package to include.

The autoIT docs does not include the pointer for the relevant mouse button (should be called something like mouse button 4, or the one that goes "back" on the browser by default), so searching further I found the www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/90492-hotkey-udf/ which states its ability to solve my issue by mapping more keys, but I would not know what to do with a UDF let alone incorporate this particular one for my simple query!

This is quite overwhelming for someone that has not dabbled in scripting before, especially as my function as described below is simple:

right/left click down


right/left click up


shift down


shift up

etc., to be used for a game.

Can someone please write me the syntax required to perform such a task, or direct me to tutorials in which I could learn how to create that, complete with looping to a mapped hotkey.

Many thanks
