Help with mouse click command

6 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

ok i am rather new to Autoit, i have looked over the help section but i cant put my finger on why my script isnt working the way i need it to. A little help to set me in the right direction would be much appreciated.

What I am trying to do is tell my mouse to move to position 860, 615 and left click. but only if a mouse cursor exist. If the mouse cursor does not exist then hit the alt key until the cursor appears.

This is what I have come up with by reading the guides, but it isn't working as intended.

Global $Cursor = MouseGetCursor ()

While 1
Do
Sleep ( 1000 )
Until MouseGetCursor ( ) = 2
WEnd

If $Cursor = 2 Then
send("{ALTDOWN}")
sleep(100)
MouseClick("left",860,615,1,0)
sleep(100)
send("{ALTUP}")
sleep(1000)

This is for a utility program i am trying to test. I hope autoit will make it easier for me to click through it.

Ok i am trying another attempt, but now i get the error that there is no While with my Wend...

So confused...

#RequireAdmin
; Press Esc to terminate script, Pause/Break to "pause"

Global $Cursor = MouseGetCursor ()
Global $Paused
HotKeySet("{PAUSE}", "TogglePause")
HotKeySet("{ESC}", "Terminate")

;;;;;

sleep(15000)
While 1
If $Cursor = 0 Then
    send("{ALT}")

Do
    Sleep ( 1000 )
Until MouseGetCursor ( ) = 2

If $Cursor = 2 Then
    MouseClick("left",860,615,1,0)
Wend

;;;;;;;;

Func TogglePause()
$Paused = NOT $Paused
while $Paused
sleep(100)
ToolTip('script is "Paused"',0,0)
Wend
TootTip("")
EndFunc

Func Terminate()
Exit 0
EndFunc

This code:

If $Cursor = 2 Then
    MouseClick("left",860,615,1,0)
Wend

Is missing an EndIf.

If you are using the full version of the Scite4Autoit3 download then you can press CTRL-F5 to check your code and it will tell you where the error is.


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.

ok i corrected the missing EndIf and some other errors now, thanks for the advice. I am still not getting the proper results

here is my current revised script

#RequireAdmin
; Press Esc to terminate script, Pause/Break to "pause"

Global $Cursor = MouseGetCursor ()
Global $Paused
HotKeySet("{PAUSE}", "TogglePause")
HotKeySet("{ESC}", "Terminate")

;;;;;

sleep(10000)
While 1
Do
Sleep ( 1000 )
Until MouseGetCursor () = 2

If MouseGetCursor () = 0 Then
send("{ALT}")
EndIf

If MouseGetCursor () = 2 Then
MouseClick("left",860,615,1,0)
EndIf
Wend

;;;;;;;;

Func TogglePause()
$Paused = NOT $Paused
while $Paused
sleep(100)
ToolTip('script is "Paused"',0,0)
Wend
TootTip("")
EndFunc

Func Terminate()
Exit 0
EndFunc

It works on windows desktop but not on my utility program's pop up window. Any ideas?

Hi, JeffCline, welcome to the forum. What is the utility you're trying to manipulate? MouseClicks are inherently buggy; there may be are undoubtedly much easier ways of interacting with the windows of your program.
