Click at location (coordinates) in _ie?

8 posts in this topic

I'm trying to figure out if there's a way to click at pixel locations in an _ie window, without taking over the mouse.

I haven't tried anything yet, other than the normal mouse click functions, because I don't know where to begin looking, and googling didn't turn up anything useful.

Open up the SciTE editor and press F1 (Or at the top of the window click on Help -> Help)

This will open up the AutoIT Help window.

Under then Index tab on the left, type in _IE

From there you should see a number of functions that you can use in IE

use _IEAction with click argument.  it'll click the button without affecting the mouse.

I was looking for a coordinate system, but _IEAction may work in this case.

There is an option somewhere to select whether your coords are relative to the application window or the whole screen.

see _IEPropertyGet to get screen or window cords.

It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?

I'm trying to play around with the following:

$oIE.document.elementFromPoint(45,150).click

Seems to work.  Not sure if it will just click on the middle of the element found at those coords, or on those actual coordinates.  Something to look into.

Doesn't use your cursor.
