Mouse control

5 posts in this topic

I'm need to do a fairly simple mouse automation. Is it possible to create scripts with autoit that don't take over your mouse so I can do other things while the mouse automation script runs in the background. If you know another programs that allows that let me know.

It depends on what you want to automate but in general no - not if you need to do everything by mouse. The only way you could automate things and keep control would be to use the _IE* UDF functions with an embedded IE object, a UDF that programatically communicates with something (such as the Outlook UDF) or by using some sort of COM reference.

And unfortunately I don't believe you'll find another solution out there that allows you to mimic mouse movements whilst still being able to do other things, simply because of the way Windows works.

ControlSend

ControlClick

I checked these out. Found their usefulness limiting on the client I need them to work on.
