Program blocks automated mouse movement, how to override?

Recommended Posts

Dear all,

I'm creating this program where the goal is to automate some mouse -click and dragging on an external application.

Now the problem is, this external application is blocking every automate mouse moves, clicks or anything related to using the mouse.

So I figured autoit uses postmessage and user32.dll to move the mouse and that this application blocks these attempts.

Now I'm wondering if there's a different way to move the mouse so it'll go undetected by this external app.

Any other suggestions are welcome to.

Thnx in advance

Hmm, have you tried including

#RequireAdmin
in your script? Worth a try :)

ludocus,

You carefully speak of "this program", "an external application", "this external application", "this application" & "this external app" without specifying its name. If it is a game it probably has anti-bot protection and we are not going to help you beat it - if it is not, please let us know what it is and then we can look into it. :)

      As my first stab at GUI scripting, I'm trying to write a simple graphical interface for Grep for Windows. I have a basic GUI, but I'm stuck on one point and nothing I've tried so far works. The sticking point is that while the Tab key works to move focus from one input control to the next, clicking the mouse on any but the first input does nothing. This seems like a basic feature of GUI functionality that should work out of the box (like Tab), but clearly I'm missing something. I tried (among many other things) Melba23's technique in the post below, but this doesn't do what I'm after -- getting the left click to set the insertion point for user input. Would greatly appreciate a pointer or two. 😉
      Here's my code so far:
      ; Grep for Windows -- GUI [CLD] #include <AutoItConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <StaticConstants.au3> #include <WinAPI.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", -2) #cs FileInstall("X:\nix\search1.ico", @TempDir & "\search1.ico") FileInstall("X:\nix\grep.exe", @TempDir & "\grep.exe") FileInstall("X:\nix\sed.exe", @TempDir & "\sed.exe") FileInstall("X:\nix\libiconv2.dll", @TempDir & "\libiconv2.dll") FileInstall("X:\nix\libintl3.dll", @TempDir & "\libintl3.dll") FileInstall("X:\nix\pcre3.dll", @TempDir & "\pcre3.dll") FileInstall("X:\nix\regex2.dll", @TempDir & "\regex2.dll") #ce ; $sDefFs = @ScriptDir & "\.txt" $sOut = "" $iX = 20 $iY = 20 $hgGGrep = GUICreate("Grep for Windows: Simple TeXT search", 600, 600) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hgGGrep) ; Obtain value of control: GUICtrlRead() ; left, top, width, height ; $iX, $iY, $iX + n, $iY + m ; $hgIco = GUICtrlCreateIcon(@ScriptDir & "\search1.ico", $iX, $iY, 10) $hgGL0 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Enter a string or regular expression" & @CRLF & "(space between words means ""OR"")", $iX + 50, $iY, 250, 30) $hgSch = GUICtrlCreateInput("", $iX + 50, $iY + 40, 325, 20, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_INPUT, -1) $hgXyZ = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("cAsE-sEnSiTiVe", $iX + 50, $iY + 65, -1, -1) $hgExe = GUICtrlCreateButton("Search", 400, $iY + 40, -1, -1) $hgFL1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Filespec", $iX + 50, $iY + 100, 250, 20) $hgFs1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("d:\path\*.txt", $iX + 110, $iY + 100, 250, 20, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_INPUT, -1) $hgFL2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Filespec", $iX + 50, $iY + 120, 250, 20) $hgFs2 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", $iX + 110, $iY + 120, 250, 20, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_INPUT, -1) $hgFL3 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Filespec", $iX + 50, $iY + 140, 250, 20) $hgFs3 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", $iX + 110, $iY + 140, 250, 20, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_INPUT,-1) $hgOut = GUICtrlCreateEdit($sOut, 25, 190, 550, 400, $ES_LEFT, -1) GUICtrlSetState($hgSch, $GUI_FOCUS) While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit EndSwitch WEnd ; #cs _WinAPI_SetFocus(ControlGetHandle("Grep for Windows", "", $hgSch)) _WinAPI_SetFocus(ControlGetHandle("Grep for Windows", "", $hgFs1)) _WinAPI_SetFocus(ControlGetHandle("Grep for Windows", "", $hgFs2)) _WinAPI_SetFocus(ControlGetHandle("Grep for Windows", "", $hgFs3)) #ce Thanks in advance.

      This one has me baffled.  I can't seem to get MouseMove to work properly with scaling in some windows.
      Run this program and use the arrow keys to move the mouse Up, Down, Left, Right at native (100%) scaling and it works as expected. 
      Now go to 125%, for example, and move Up, Down, Left, Right on the desktop and it works.
      Now open the MouseMove help window (cursor on MouseMove then F1).
      Move the mouse into the MouseMove help window and try Up, Down, Left, Right and the movements are diagonal!
      If you move, for example, right from desktop into the MouseMove window it goes from moving right to down and right (diagonal) as soon as the mouse hits the MouseMove help window.  I'm stumped.
      How do I get MouseMove to work properly?  Any hints appreciated.

      Hi guys,
       
      I've written a script that will move my mouse to a location on the screen whenever my remote access software becomes active, the problem I have is that as soon as the remote access software becomes active it appears to capture the mouse and keyboard so nothing happens when I use MouseMove().
       
      Is there any way around this?
       
      Thanks!

      Hi guys,
      So I am trying to automate a task and this task has an input box with an already set character "9". 
      I have just decided that I don't really need the input as an option but it's good to leave however for this instance I would like it to run past this point automatically. I've tried numerous ways to try and automate the use of the "OK" button using ControlClick and various other options. I just can't seem to see where this point in the script is. Scoured the forums for anything similar but didn't have any luck finding anything. Sorry to be a pain and I hope someone can help, if I haven't explained in enough detail please don't hesitate to ask for more.
      Many thanks,
      Ackerz
       
      Local $len Local $n Local $buff Local $aMyDate $Len = InputBox("Test",$msgPrompt,"9") $len = StringStripWS($len,$STR_STRIPALL) ;Check that user has entered a vaild password length if not StringIsDigit($len) or $len = 0 Then MsgBox(48,"Error","Invaild Integer was entered" & @CRLF & "Program will now exit.") Exit EndIf ;This creates the random password. for $i = 1 to $Len ;Pick a random char between 1 and the pwsMask Length $n = int(random(1,StringLen($pwsMask))) ;Concat each char that has been picked out of pwsMask to $buff $buff = $Buff & StringMid($pwsmask,$n,1) Next

      Hey, all.  
      I've been looking for a way to change cursor colour but not the cursor itself. I've been looking for a couple hours now and can't find anything.  I also don't even know where to start, if anyone has any tips or examples please comment them.
      Thanks
