Simulate actual mouse movement

10 posts in this topic

Hello, I am writing a script to work in an environment with no real mouse coordinates. The real cursor is underneath and the visible cursor is above. When the real cursor hits the sides of the box, it is warped to the center, but the visible cursor is not. So, when I use autoit, I am faced with many problems. I have solved most with using only relative mouse movements, but not all.

When I manually move the mouse, I have no problems whatsoever. So is there a way to have autoit move the mouse and have it act as if a person was physically moving the mouse?

MouseClick? Don't you mean MouseMove? That should act just the same as if you move your mouse.

Look in the Help for MouseClick

I'm not entirely sure how this is supposed to help me. I KNOW how to move the mouse. However, autoit moves the mouse in a different way than the actual physical plastic mouse does. When I manually move the mouse the visible cursor behaves as expected. It does not do so when I have auto it do it. because the window I am working in has no true coordinates, I get the mouse position, then move it currentPos + X pixels so the visible cursor moves that many pixels. However, it behaves strangely (flying to the corner) at a certain limit. Again, this does not happen with the Manuel movement of the mouse.

use MouseCoordMode option and MouseClick

MouseCoordMode Sets the way coords are used in the mouse functions, either absolute coords or coords relative to the current active window:

0 = relative coords to the active window

1 = absolute screen coordinates (default)

2 = relative coords to the client area of the active window

@Saunders

MouseClick

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Perform a mouse click operation.

MouseClick ( "button" [, x, y [, clicks [, speed ]]] )

Parameters

button

The button to click: "left", "right", "middle", "main", "menu", "primary", "secondary".

x, y [optional] The x/y coordinates to move the mouse to. If no x and y coords are given, the current position is used.

clicks [optional] The number of times to click the mouse. Default is 1.

speed [optional] the speed to move the mouse in the range 1 (fastest) to 100(slowest). A speed of 0 will move the mouse instantly. Default speed is 10.

Tried that. Like I said, the actual mouse cursor (the hidden one) is warped to the center when it hits the edges, so a relative movement that hits the edge is messed up, because it is warped halfway through moving. The only solution I have is moving it ONE pixel at a time in a loop but that seems like it would be rather slower than I need it to be.....

UPDATE: does the same thing with moving it a single (relative) pixel at a time. I'm stumped on this one....

give this a try and see what you think.

#include <GuiConstants.au3>

$GUI_WIN = GuiCreate("MyGUI", 392, 323,(@DesktopWidth-392)/2, (@DesktopHeight-323)/2)

$Button_1 = GuiCtrlCreateButton("&OK", 70, 210, 90, 40)
$Button_2 = GuiCtrlCreateButton("E&xit", 230, 210, 90, 40)
$Button_3 = GuiCtrlCreateButton("Test Mouse Click", (392/2) - 45, (323/2) - 20, 90, 40)

GuiSetState()
While 1
    $msg = GuiGetMsg()
    Select
    Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        ExitLoop
    Case $msg = $Button_1
        ConsoleWrite("_MouseClick Button 1" & @CR)
    Case $msg = $Button_2
        ConsoleWrite("_MouseClick Button 2" & @CR)
        ExitLoop
    Case $msg = $Button_3
        _MouseClick($GUI_WIN,"","Button1")
        _MouseClick($GUI_WIN,"","Button2")
    EndSelect
WEnd
Exit

Func _MouseClick($TITLE, $TEXT, $CONTROLID)
    Local $MouseCoordModeBAK = AutoItSetOption("MouseCoordMode", 2)
   Local $POS = ControlGetPos($TITLE, $TEXT, $CONTROLID)
   MouseMove($POS[0] + 10, $POS[1] + 10, 4)
   MouseDown("left")
   Sleep(500)
   MouseUp("left")
    AutoItSetOption("MouseCoordMode", $MouseCoordModeBAK)
EndFunc ;==>_MouseClick

You could try this automation program too.... just to see

Hope it helps

Out of curiousity, what exactly are you doing/using that has such strange behaviour? Warping the mouse around and such, that is.

if you're passing the end of the screen with a normal mouse move, causing the mouse to then become centered, it sounds like your other program is running in a diff resolution than you expect. what i would suggest is to find out allowable dimensions by making a debugging script that just puts the coords of the mouse...

you could make a function that upon a hotkey puts the mouse position to a file, then check your edges and hit the hotkey with mouse at edge, or easier, you could just add a tooltip to the mouse in an infinite loop (hotkey to stop) that displays the mouse coords. i've had to do that a few times... once you have the limits of your viewable window it's just a matter of making sure that none of your mousemove()'s go outside of those limits...
