MouseClick with INTDEFAULT x/y coordinates not working

5 posts in this topic

I wrote a script to highlight onscreen text (3 x left mouse click) and read it using the shortcut key for my text to speech program (Ctrl + F9).

The script works perfect when I use x/y coordinates. It highlights the text at that coordinate and reads it.

MouseClick("left" 500, 500, 3, 0)
Send("^{F9}",0)

But when I set it with default x/y coordinates so that I can highlight and read the text at the current cursor position, it doesn't highlight the text.

MouseClick("left" INTDEFAULT, INTDEFAULT, 3, 0)
Send("^{F9}",0)

I wrote the script to assign to a remote control button using Intelliremote software which supports AutoItX scripts. So I need to use the current cursor position so I can highlight and read any text onscreen.

Why does the script not work with the INTDEFAULT values?

Solved this with the following script:

MouseClick("left" INTDEFAULT, INTDEFAULT, 1, 0)
MouseClick("left" INTDEFAULT, INTDEFAULT, 1, 0)
MouseClick("left" INTDEFAULT, INTDEFAULT, 1, 0)
Send("^{F9}",0)

What is INTDEFAULT? I've never seen that before. Are you sure you don't mean the keyword "Default"?


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.
