MouseClick coordinates

Recommended Posts

ckelsoe

Hi all,

I am migrating some scripts from AutoHotKey to AutoIT. In AHK the mouse coordinates are specific to the active window. In AutoIt the coordinates seems to be based on the screen and not the window. I am unable to find a way to duplicate the behavior of the AHK MouseClick which is based on the active window and not the screen. I found in the AutoIt Window Info app how to change the basis of the coordinates to Window via the Coord Mode option. How do I get that to apply to MouseClick in code?

Thanks

As a side note I looked into using the ControlClick function. However the web page controls does not have an ID, name, etc. I do see the X / Y of the control. So I am back to using the X,Y values which so far seem to be based on the screen and not the active window for the MouseClick.
