Screen to Client coordinates conversion

8 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I can't convert X and Y coordinates to client from screen.

Here's the code:

#include <WinAPI.au3>
$x_koef = 65535/@DesktopWidth
$y_koef = 65535/@DesktopHeight
$User32 = DllOpen("User32.dll")
$hWnd = WinGetHandle('notepad.exe')

Click(153, 465)

Func Click($x, $y)
$x *= $x_koef
$y *= $y_koef
Local $tpoint = DllStructCreate("int X;int Y")
DllStructSetData($tpoint, "X", $x)
DllStructSetData($tpoint, "Y", $y)
_WinAPI_ScreenToClient($hWnd,$tpoint)
$x = DllStructGetData($tpoint, "X")
$y = DllStructGetData($tpoint, "Y")
;MsgBox(0,'Title',$x&@CRLF&$y)
DllCall($User32, "none", "mouse_event", "int", 32769, "int", $x, "int", $y, "int", 0, "int", 0) ; 32769 0x8001 BitOR($MOUSEEVENTF_ABSOLUTE, $MOUSEEVENTF_MOVE)
DllCall($User32, "none", "mouse_event", "int", 32770, "int", $x, "int", $y, "int", 0, "int", 0) ; 32770 0x8002 BitOR($MOUSEEVENTF_ABSOLUTE, $MOUSEEVENTF_LEFTDOWN)
DllCall($User32, "none", "mouse_event", "int", 32772, "int", $x, "int", $y, "int", 0, "int", 0) ; 32772 0x8004 BitOR($MOUSEEVENTF_ABSOLUTE, $MOUSEEVENTF_LEFTUP)
EndFunc

I fixed it with that:

$winpos = WinGetPos($hWnd)
$x += $winpos[0] + 5
$y += $winpos[1] + 24

Aren't there any other methods?

If you are talking about clicking the client area of notepad window then you might do this.

Opt("MouseCoordMode", 2) ;1=absolute, 0=relative, 2=client

$hWnd = WinGetHandle('notepad.exe')

WinActivate($hWnd)
WinWaitActive($hWnd)

MouseClick("Primary",153, 465)

Yes, I know, thanks, but I found somewhere on forums that MouseClick has "forced" 10ms sleep, and there was this example with DllCall etc.

I wanted to try it, and it's really faster :) it's so fast, that apps aren't responding sometimes because there are too many clicks.

What are you trying to accomplish that requires you to click on something faster than 100 times a second?

I don't want to click 100 times a second, just I want to click two buttons checkboxes with minimal delay, and 10ms is too much.

Click(155, 465)
Click(155, 495)
Send("{enter}")

That's all :)

From the help file:

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 (default). 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.

From here:

@MrCreatoR

No matter what helpfile say what is in my first post is true. I analysed Autoit's 3.1.0 sources to see where is problem when I needed fast clicking in one of my projects. So I discovered this issue and have made this workaround.

In my project clicking worked fine and it was really VERY fast.

I tried with MouseClick() and Zedna's click is really faster. It's so fast, that apps aren't responding if you loop it.

I wouldn't try something like that if it wouldn't be faster.

Am I wrong?

I'm still not sure why 10ms is "too much" when all you need to do is click 2 checkboxes, but in all actuallity I don't really care any longer either. Use whatever you want to click the screen as fast as you want, I'm out.
