_MouseTrap() in Client Area

7 posts in this topic

I have a script that _MouseTraps() within the entire window. Works quite well. What I want to do, however, is _MouseTrap() in the Client Area. The one thread I did find only said that the example did just that but I can't find the example that was referred to.

Playing with the AutoItSetOption("MouseCoordMode", 1) ;1=absolute, 0=relative, 2=client doesn't seem to effect where the mouse is trapped. It is always trapped in the whole window. I am using WinGetPos and Mouse Trapping on the results.

Can someone point me to an example or documentation on how to MouseTrap in the Client Area?

Thanks!

No joy. I have a small notepad window. Left, Right, Top and Bottom are 0 547 0 394

No matter where I move that notepad window Left, right, top and bottom never change. Can't mouse trap on that. If I shrink or expand the windows the right and bottom change but the left and top are always 0,0

I think a little confusion comes from the coordinates returned by the GetClient area functions. It always returns 0,0 for the upper left. That is fine but .... how do you MouseTrap relitive to a Window and not the full screen? Is there a better mouse trap LOL?

The x and y might be zero, but the width and height are not.

borderwidth = (Windowwidth - Clientwidth) / 2

Gives you your borderwidth (if any)

Clientx = Windowx + borderwidth

You see where this is going.

Let me get this straight, you want to

$pos = WinGetPos("win title")

_MouseTrap($pos[0],$pos[1],$pos[0]+$pos[2],$pos[1]+$pos[3])

?
