Help for link to command that have no example on AutoIT guide.

Recommended Posts

mercadantelaura

Hi, i'm new on this forum.
I'm writing my personal script using AutoIT 3.3.8.1 and i need
to know if mouse wheel UP or DOWN is used to know direction  and their

steps up or down to know how is the movement.
I have the function

#include <WinAPI.au3>
_WinAPI_Mouse_Event($iFlags [, $iX = 0 [, $iY = 0 [, $iData = 0 [,

$iExtraInfo = 0]]]])

and $IiFlags = $MOUSEEVENTF_WHEEL
and $iData that informs me of movement.

But i don't know how use it and in the guide there isn't example
to study and i found nothing on web
have you some WEB link to write me in order to see ho use this function

?

I thank you if you can give me some help.

From helpfile:

$iData = [optional] If iFlags is $MOUSEEVENTF_WHEEL, then iData specifies the amount of wheel movement. A positive value indicates that the wheel was rotated forward away from the user. A negative value indicates that the wheel was rotated backward, toward the user. One wheel click is defined as $WHEEL_DELTA, which is 120. If iFlags is not $MOUSEEVENTF_WHEEL, then $iData should be zero.

TO  Guinness:

 

The porpouse is to create a script to use it into background of my

client mail "FOXMAIL"
in order to have a menu to choose from lots category of
template and each category their models as IncrediMail do.
Now "FoxMail" don't permit to have preview, user must always
open menu Template ...chose category ...choose model.htm
(without remember me with preview how is it)
and then it is loaded.
If it not satisfy that i want i must close the window and i
do again all steps

For this reason i want realzie a script that
read Foxmail INI file and load their file template then show menu
with category and their SUB-NAME showing small preview.
Cliccking on small preview do the big preview and load them into
NEW POST of Foxmail.

Is very laborious and
I don't know if i have sufficient experience to do realize my project.
AutoIT have lots command and functions, but i'm studying the guide
and i hope to realize it.

They mentioned it in the first post.

Have a look at this...

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

Example()

Func Example()
    Local $hGUI = GUICreate('WM_MOUSEWHEEL')
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hGUI)

    GUIRegisterMsg($WM_MOUSEWHEEL, 'WM_MOUSEWHEEL')

    While 1
        Switch GUIGetMsg()
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                ExitLoop

        EndSwitch
    WEnd
    
    GUIDelete($hGUI)
EndFunc   ;==>Example

Func WM_MOUSEWHEEL($hWnd, $iMsg, $wParam, $lParam)
    #forceref $hWnd, $iMsg, $lParam
    Local $iLength = _WinAPI_HiWord($wParam) / 120
    If $iLength > 0 Then
        ConsoleWrite('Scrolled Up ' & $iLength & @LF)
    Else
        ConsoleWrite('Scrolled Down ' & Abs($iLength) & @LF)
    EndIf
EndFunc   ;==>WM_MOUSEWHEEL

I thought the issue would be related to constants.au3 needing to be included, hence "See Remarks". Just another of my feeble and probably useless help attempts. :)

    $Step = $valueOfData/120
    Select
        case $ValueData=0
            MsgBox(48, "Info", "No movemenet of mouse")
        case $ValueData<1
            MsgBox(48, "Info", "The movement is backword" & @LF & "The wheel click done are: " & $Step)
        case $ValueData>1
            MsgBox(48, "Info", "The movement is forward" & @LF & "The wheel click done are: " & $Step)
    EndSelect

In your code, you define $valueOfData, but in the Select, you are checking the value of $ValueData.

Infact I want check how is the movement and how is the direction.

How is the correction to do to my script in order to know the wheel direction and its steps ?

I'm looking for to know how is value of flag $iData that function _WinAPI_Mouse_Event($MOUSEEVENTF... use inside

because in guide are wrote that this flag is positive or negative for forward or backword and is zero if don't exist Mousevent

But how i can test value of $iData when i move wheel mouse i??

In your code, you define $valueOfData, but in the Select, you are checking the value of $ValueData.

$valueOfData and $ValueData are two different variables. Perhaps you haven't shown all of your code, or the second variable is defined in one of the #includes. I have no desire to explore and find if this is the case. $valueOfData and $ValueData are two different variables.

Ops, i have'nt saw this error.
I have wrote two different variable, but my intention was

write always "$valueOfData"  and not "$valueData"

The script is only this, that i wrote as example  to know how is the

direction and step of wheel.
If i correct wrong name of variable, is correct the script

to show me on msgbox the dierction and step ?

I don't know, you'll have to try. I don't have a mouse with a wheel, or even a mouse for that matter.

_WinAPI_Mouse_Event doesn't READ the mouse, it moves the mouse from what I'm reading in the header information of the function.
