[SOLVED] Mouse coordinates relative to active window?

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hello

By default, AutoIt uses absolute screen coordinates for the MouseClick() function.

I'd like to use relative coordinates to the active window instead, so that the script doesn't break because I moved the window and it saved its location.

Howerver, both the Window Info utility and the Au3Recorder utility only seems to show/record absolute coordinates.

What tool could I use to find the coordinates of a location within the active window?

Thank you.

Why use MouseClick? Use ControlClick, that's more reliable.

Because it's not a control, but rather an X button to close the window. It' a Delphi-based VLC control, not a standard Windows control. Windows Info shows no control when I move its finder tool over it.

In Au3Info you change it in Options > Coord mode

Thanks for the info.
