Popup icon or image from keyboard and mouse buttons

3 posts in this topic

I'm looking for a way to have a small icon or image popup on the screen in a specified location from a keystroke or mouse pick. Do you know if AutoIt can do this somehow? I've used AutoIt in the past mostly for automating software installation so I know some but I'm no expert. Currently, I'm putting together some video tutorials and I need something to visually show when a keyboard or mouse button is pressed. The image or icon would popup into the video during recording.

Thanks

i did it like this...

$pos = ""
    $pos=GUIGetCursorInfo() 
    If $pos[4] = 5 Then 
        GUIctrlSetState($prog_1_pic, $GUI_SHOW)
        GUIctrlSetState($prog_1_label, $GUI_SHOW)
        Do
            $msg1 = GUIGetMsg()
            If $msg1 = $Prog_1 Then MsgBox(64, " Item Creater"," Item Creater Program will now Run   "); call the function
            $pos1=GUIGetCursorInfo()    
            Sleep(100)
        Until $pos1[4] <> 5 
        GUIctrlSetState($prog_1_label, $GUI_HIDE)
        GUIctrlSetState($prog_1_pic, $GUI_HIDE)
    EndIf   
    
    If $pos[4] = 6 Then 
        GUIctrlSetState($prog_2_pic, $GUI_SHOW)
        GUIctrlSetState($prog_2_label, $GUI_SHOW)
        Do
            $msg1 = GUIGetMsg()
            If $msg1 = $Prog_2 Then MsgBox(64, " That Program"," That Program will now Run   "); call the function
            $pos1=GUIGetCursorInfo()    
            Sleep(100)
        Until $pos1[4] <> 6 
        GUIctrlSetState($prog_2_label, $GUI_HIDE)
        GUIctrlSetState($prog_2_pic, $GUI_HIDE)
    EndIf

i used a picture with words over it

Thanks a lot for the quick reply! I was just look through the GUI functionality for the first time realizing the answer was probably in there somewhere. I tried to lauch your code, but nothing happened except for a blip of the mouse cursor. I'm going study it to see if I can follow. Thanks!
