Mouseclick doesn't work in MS Word

9 posts in this topic

My simple program which creates a right mouse click works fine on say the desktop or in chrome but produces nothing in some programs such as MS word or Tableau.  The terminate command works fine however everywhere.  

Thoughts appreciated and thanks in advance.

HotKeySet("^n", "_Terminate")
HotKeySet("^r","mouse")
 
While 1
     Sleep(100)
WEnd
 
Func mouse()
   MouseClick("right")
   ;MouseClick("left")
EndFunc
 
Func _Terminate()
    MsgBox(4096, "", "BYE!")
    Exit
EndFunc

Ctrl + r is already used as a shortcut in word.  So is Ctrl + n. This works for me in word:

HotKeySet("{ESC}", "_Terminate")
HotKeySet("{PAUSE}","mouse")

While 1
     Sleep(100)
WEnd

Func mouse()
   MouseClick("right")
   ;MouseClick("left")
EndFunc

Func _Terminate()
    MsgBox(4096, "", "BYE!")
    Exit
EndFunc

Thanks computergroove.  That helps.

So a local program's hotkeys will always trump AUTOIT?  That seems too bad.  

I don't understand the architecture enough to know if it's possible to reverse that.

Did my changes work for you? Have you tried it yet?

Oh, yes, sorry, your changes work fine. But I want to use ^n not ESC as my hotkey.

Thanks

Maybe you can use shift+ctrl+n. Why is this so important?

Well it's personal preference... I guess I'll try turning off the hotkeys in word if I can.  Would be nice if AutoIT would take priority however.

Thanks.

Why use mouseclicks to automate MS Word? AutoIt comes with a Word UDF.
