Mouse Coordinates for Dual Monitors

4 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I have two monitors. When I use something like MouseClick, it can only be used within the primary (left side) monitor. How do I click things on the second (right side) monitor?

I'm sure this is a simple question that has been asked before, but strangely I found nothing on Google. Any advice?

Thanks!

one monitor uses positive coordinates, the other uses negative (at least from what I remember)

*edit*

you can check for certain using the AutoIt window info tool on your desktop and looking at the mouse coordinate values.

On my 2 monitors, the X coordinate goes to the X size of the main monitor, then when it goes to the far right side of the right monitor the X value is the sum of the two monitors. So if you have 2 1440x900 monitors, the X value will be 2880 when it's at the far right side of the right hand monitor.

BrewMan, that worked.

KaotKbliss, the Window Info tool showed the same coordinates for the righthand monitor. Not sure why.

Thanks for your help!
