Need help with mousemove in a windowed program.

Recommended Posts


Dear All,


When following the tutorials, I could make simple commands specifically to a Notepad window. However, the same simple command does not work on a program.

I grabbed the window's info:

>>>> Window <<<<
Title:  StoneAge vBeta
Class:  StoneAge
Position:   3, 4
Size:   646, 505
Style:  0x14CA0000
ExStyle:    0x00000100
Handle: 0x000000000003030E

>>>> Control <<<<
Advanced (Class):   
ControlClick Coords:    

>>>> Mouse <<<<
Position:   414, 289
Cursor ID:  2
Color:  0xFF5F01

>>>> StatusBar <<<<

>>>> ToolsBar <<<<

>>>> Visible Text <<<<

>>>> Hidden Text <<<<

Here is the simple script:

Opt("MouseCoordMode", 2) ;1=absolute, 0=relative, 2=client
Opt("WinTextMatchMode", 1) ;1=complete, 2=quick
Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 4) ;1=start, 2=subStr, 3=exact, 4=advanced, -1 to -4=Nocase
Opt("WinWaitDelay", 250) ;250 milliseconds

#region MouseMove
WinWaitActive("[CLASS:StoneAge; INSTANCE:1]")
Mousemove(414, 289)

Why can this sort of command work perfectly for the notepad and not for this?

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :)

Is "Stone Age" a game as my Google hits suggest? If so then there is probably some form of protection to prevent bots from working - and you should read the Forum rules. ;)
