Mouse Coordinates for Dual Monitors


Recommended Posts

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.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.
