ControlClick / MouseClick Issue.

Recommended Posts

Here is the image search function i use.

Func mySearch($location, $text)
    $fileA = @ScriptDir & $location


    $hImageA =_GDIPlus_ImageLoadFromFile($fileA) ;this is the firefox icon use something else if you don't have it.
    $hBitmapA = _GDIPlus_BitmapCreateHBITMAPFromBitmap($hImageA)

    $x = 0
    $y = 0

    ;Func _ImageSearchArea($findImage,$resultPosition,$x1,$y1,$right,$bottom,ByRef $x, ByRef $y, $tolerance,$HBMP=0
    $result = _ImageSearch($hBitmapA, 1, $x, $y, 100, 0) ;Zero will search against your active screen
    If $result > 0 Then
        ;MouseMove($x, $y)
        ;MsgBox(0,"",$x & " " & $y)
        ;TrayTip ( $trayTipTitle, $text, $trayTipTimeout)

        ControlClick($myHWnd,"","","left",1, $x, $y)

        ;MouseClick("left", $x, $y, 1)
    ElseIf $result == 0 Then
        TrayTip ( $trayTipTitle, "NOT FOUND!", $trayTipTimeout)


if i do a function call mySearch($fireFoxIcon, $text) and un-comment mouseMove($x, $y) it finds the image and moves to it to the correct location. Now if i use the ControlClick($myHWnd,"","","left",1, $x, $y) it finds the image but  clicks near the coordinates but not exactly where i want them to click.

Any idea why this is happening?

Things ive tried.

1. getting a new image

2. mouseclick instead of controlclick and that works but not what i want.

3. mousecoormod 1 no difference.

I know there are other ways to activate a browser but im just using Firefox icon to test the imagesearch and controlclick.

MouseClick uses screen coords

ControlClick uses client coords

Might look at:



I guess I it would actually be:


You're translating your "screen" coordinates to "client" coordinates, so your "controlclick()" has the proper place to click.

Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.
