Duplicate cursors with transparent image

3 posts in this topic

So i borrowed this code and made some adjustments to fit my needs. Basically i am wanting to mimic the main windows cursor and create a duplicate cursor at a different location of the monitor. So on code line 18, "ToolTip("^", $mouse[0] + GUICtrlRead($xDistanceInput) - 100, $mouse[1] + GUICtrlRead($yDistanceInput))" i want that to be a transparent PNG image. That image will be a cursor image

#include <Misc.au3>

HotKeySet("{ESC}", "_exit")
$mouse = MouseGetPos()

$xDistanceInput = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 128, 0, 49, 21)
$yDistanceInput = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 128, 24, 49, 21)
_secondMouse()

While 1
    Sleep(10)
WEnd

Func _secondMouse()
    While 1
        Sleep(5)
        $mouse = MouseGetPos()
        ToolTip("^", $mouse[0] + GUICtrlRead($xDistanceInput) - 100, $mouse[1] + GUICtrlRead($yDistanceInput))
        If _IsPressed("01") Then _mouseClick()
        If _IsPressed("78") Then ;HotKeySet{F9}
            ToolTip("")
            ExitLoop
        EndIf
    WEnd
EndFunc   ;==>_secondMouse

Func _mouseClick()
    ToolTip("")
    MouseUp("left")
    MouseMove($mouse[0] + GUICtrlRead($xDistanceInput), $mouse[1] + GUICtrlRead($yDistanceInput), 0)
    MouseDown("left")
    Sleep(50)
    MouseUp("left")
    MouseMove($mouse[0], $mouse[1], 0)
    ToolTip("^", $mouse[0] + GUICtrlRead($xDistanceInput), $mouse[1] + GUICtrlRead($yDistanceInput))
EndFunc   ;==>_mouseClick

Func _exit()
    Exit
EndFunc   ;==>_exit

Here is an idea, using a transparent GUI and an icon control with a Windows cursor :

#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>

HotKeySet("{ESC}", "_Quit")

Local $sCursorPic = @WindowsDir & "\Cursors\aero_arrow.cur"
Local $distanceX = 100
Local $distanceY = -10
Local $aPos, $aOldPos


Local $hCursorGUI = GUICreate("DUPLICATE CURSOR", 48, 48, Default, Default, $WS_POPUP, BitOr($WS_EX_LAYERED, $WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW, $WS_EX_TOPMOST) )
Local $picture = GUICtrlCreateIcon($sCursorPic, -1,  0, 0, 48, 48)
GUISetBkColor(0xABCDEF)
_WinAPI_SetLayeredWindowAttributes($hCursorGUI, 0xABCDEF, 255)

GUISetState()

While 1
    $aPos = MouseGetPos()
    If IsArray($aPos) Then
        If $aPos <> $aOldPos Then
            $aOldPos = $aPos
            WinMove($hCursorGUI, "", $aPos[0] + $distanceX, $aPos[1] + $distanceY)
        EndIf
    EndIf

    Sleep(10)
WEnd

Func _Quit()
    Exit
EndFunc

      MS Splash Screens
      The office 2016/17 office suite has made many people turn heads with its functions and especially their splash screen.
      I now present to you, the MS Style Splash Screen. For Rookies, Novices and anyone who wants a ready made splash screen for your gui application.

      You can now download it and also try it out yourself.
      You have three colors to choose from:
      Blue
      Red
      Green
      All three colours are from the famous programs.
      I also included the KODA form to you can have freedom with this splash screen.
      Note: the KODA form does not have the three colours as well as the correct blue. 

      Have fun and enjoy.
      Note:
      I will update the splash to add the automated 3 dots animation at a later stage.

      A gui splash screen. Themed after the famous MS Office Suite.
      Three colours to choose from, Red, Blue and Green.
      You can change the labels to your own application.

      Also bundled with this is the KODA form. So you can open up and see the basic structure of this splash screen.

      Hello all,
      I've been trying to figure out how to launch Google Chrome in the background (hidden) but it doesn't seem possible. I've tried the following methods:
      ShellExecute("C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe", "", "", "", @SW_HIDE) Also I've tried:
      ShellExecute(@ComSpec, "/c start chrome.exe","","",@SW_HIDE) Lastly I tried:
      RunWait('"'&@ProgramFilesDir&'\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --silent-launch',@ScriptDir)  
      But all of them launch my chrome browser without hiding it. Does anyone know a workaround for this or if AutoIT just can't Chrome? 
      Bonus points if you know how to make it launch chrome hidden and make it go to https://www.autoitscript.com
       
      Thank you,
      Brian

      I have a working program currently driven largely through menu selections. I would like to add a toolbar where most of the tollbar button actions are basically the same as menu items, but quicker to access. I have been wading around in toolbar examples, MSDN pages etc, it's clearly going to be a bit of a slog to get everything right, including tooltips etc. I thought I would start with something simple to prove the principle.
      Using bits from the help file examples I have a small program that successfully displays a toolbar. However, what seemed like the most elegant way to deal with the button commands does not seem to work. My understanding was that a toolbar button fires a WM_COMMAND message, with the command Id set by the second parameter in the call to
      _GUICtrlToolbar_AddButton ( $hWnd, $iID, $iImage)
      so I though it would be a good idea to set this Id to the same value as my menu item Id; then it would run the same task which is what I wanted. This did not work. I am using message loop mode and would like to stick with this because some of my scripts run hardware at the same time as the gui; it is easier if I don't have to worry about code being interrupted with the hardware in an unknown state . So I added a handler for WM_COMMAND, with some cribbed display code to try and see why. The toolbar button defintely fired a WM_COMMAND message and the Id looked the same, so no explanation there.
      I guess the issue is with GUIGetMsg() which may be constructed to ignore all but a limited number of control handles, i.e. those made with the GuiCtrlCreate... commands; this is speculation.
      I would dearly love to find a tidy way to get around this. Having some controls handled in the message loop and some in a WM_COMMAND handler, performing the same task, feels ugly. I would be very grateful for further insight from someone experienced with handling a toolbar. Perhaps I should be trying to fire the menu item. I have attached a code snippet to try and illustrate the issue.

      I have a situation where the desktop is designed in java swings. The nodes JTree is not allowing me to do checkbox selection using "spacebar". I am able to navigate through the nodes using up, down arrow and a tab. When I reach to the desire node selection, mouse left click is not working due a flaw a JTree core. However since it is selected, if mouse cursor auto moved to the position of the selection and send a "click"  then it should be solved. Any ideas much appreciated. 
      the problem with having fixed coordinates are the main windows is divided to 2panels where right panel containing this JTree can be expanded or shrink-ed.
