Simulating a click without using the mouse at all

10 posts in this topic

Hello,
i am interested to know whether it's possible to simulate a left mouse click without using the mouse at all.Note,that i am not saying without moving the cursor.
The reason behind my question is that with ControlClick the mouse must be present/captured,but i want to run my script on a remote server - VPS - so there is no mouse until i am logged in.After that,you know,the the physical mouse on my computer can be used in the remote desktop as well,so the script works flawlessly,but when i am not logged in,it can't be executed.Actually,it hangs on the very first click that must be simulated ...

Any workaround/solution will be greatly appreciated!

ControlClick.


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.

The click is on an actual button:

ControlClick("Name of my window","","[CLASS:WindowsForms10.Window.8.app.0.33c0d9d; INSTANCE:5]","Primary")

and it works as long as i am connected to the VPS.

But as i said,because there is no physical mouse on the server it uses the mouse of the computer i am using for connecting.
The below picture is a screenshot of the VPS - device manager.

I found a workaround,but not an actual solution... so need some further assistance!

Why do you want to use the GUI to configure VPS? Can't you do it using the command line?

@ post above:the VPS is configured ... 


Some more info:

There is an actual program that must run 24/7 on a VPS.But it crashes once every 2-3 days due to abuse of lots of members.So,when it crashes i have to start it and click two buttons.
The problem is that with ControlClick there must be a physical mouse - it doesn't work with TAB key either,so the easiest way would be to simulate mouse clicks.
