please help me with a super easy script!

Recommended Posts


hey guys. i need to create a very simple script, but after reading tutorials and trying for hours i can't figure this stuff out. i'm sure to anyone who knows a bit about autoit, it will be a 5 minute walk in the park.

basically i need a script that when ran, does the following upon me pressing the "R" key:

detect current mouse position, and store it in a variable

move the mouse pointer to coordinates (364,49)

perform a left click

and move the mouse back to the stored position

that's it. 

i would be infinitely grateful! thanks in advance for any help, or maybe even the bit of code needed.

much love <3

I had a good laugh at your username yoloswag (you had to know that username would be available)

Have a look in the Help file under Mouse Management.  Have a go and post your code if it goes wrong.

Good luck :)

HotKeySet("r", "Start")

While 1

Func Start()
    $aMousePos = MouseGetPos()
    MouseClick("Left", 364, 49, 1, 0)
    MouseMove($aMousePos[0], $aMousePos[1])

The above script will do the job, but maybe a better way to go is get an ID on the control so you can activate the control without the mouse clicking on it. That would be much more stable. In the AutoIt suite of tools you installed is a tool called AutoIt Info Tool.. Run that and use it to get the ID of the control. Post the ID and we can quickly see if we can script a simple script that will do what you need.
