Try it this way.

Global $aCoordinates1[2] = [173, 592]

Global $aCoordinates2[2] = [309, 631]

MouseClick("left", Random($aCoordinates1[0], $aCoordinates1[1]), Random($aCoordinates2[0], $aCoordinates2[1]))

Variables can only hold one value, you tried to assign two to each of them. Second, if you're going to use variable names, you need the dollar sign ("$") in front of the variable. Third, your $coordinates1 values were reversed, the higher number must be in the second position which is the Max parameter. Being reversed, the random function will always return 0.

I'm guessing that if you want the same specifics coordinates clicked each time, that the random element is for when they are clicked. In other words, a random amount of time between clicks.

Is my guess correct?

An example of how to randomly select one of two specific points to mouse click.

Local $coordinates1[2] = [592, 173]
Local $coodinates2[2] = [309, 631]
Local $aClick

For $1 = 1 To 10
    $aClick = (Random(0, 1, 1)) ? $coordinates1 : $coodinates2
    MouseClick("left", $aClick[0], $aClick[1])
    ConsoleWrite($aClick[0] & "  " & $aClick[1] & @LF)
    Sleep(1000)
Next

I'm not sure what you're asking christian11. What are the exact coordinates you need to click, and are you looking for a random time between those clicks?

yes i want it to click it randomly between two points

no not random time..

its something  like this

-> it will choose either click A or B once

->then continue the other program

 

$coordinates1=  592, 173
$coodinates2=  309 , 631

;select coord1 or coord2
MouseClick("left", random(coordinates1), random(coordinates2)
else 
send {f5}
yada yada yada

Unfortunately, you're still as clear as mud.

You say you want to click between two random points, which 2 random points? You have 4 points set in your coordinate variables, and your snippet is written wrong so reposting it is not making anything clearer.

What doesn't the snippet I posted NOT do that you want it to do? It takes a random number between 173 and 592 as the X position to click, and then it takes a random number between 309 and 631 as the Y position to click. What are the 2 numbers you have in each of your coordinates variables for if they're not the random position to click?

because from another macro program im using.. i used to think that it will select variable from according to what I defined.

its like something this

do say @random ("hello world","whats up","hi fellas") 

see? it will say from what exact words i setup

 

I think the function random is not really doing what i really wanted

maybe there's another function? sorry im really newbie to this i hope you help me

christian11,

Based on your pseudo-code above, this is the AutoIt equivalent:

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

HotKeySet("{ESC}", "_Exit")

Global $aArray[] = ["hello world", "whats up", "hi fellas"]

While 1
    ; Get a random index 0 to 2
    $iRandom = Random(0, 2, 1)
    ; Display the random array element
    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Say " * $iRandom, $aArray[$iRandom])
WEnd

Func _Exit()
    Exit
EndFunc

so it will be

like this??

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

HotKeySet("{ESC}", "_Exit")

Global $aArray[] = ["592, 173", "309, 631"]

While 1
    ; Get a random index 0 to 2
    $iRandom = Random(0, 2, 1)
    ; Display the random array element
    MouseClick("left", * $iRandom, $aArray[$iRandom] )
WEnd

Func _Exit()

    Exit

im confuse XD

christian11,

See if this makes any sense...

#include <StringConstants.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

HotKeySet("{ESC}", "_Exit")

Global $aArray[] = ['592,173', '309,631']

_clk_random() ; click coord 1 or 2 randomly once

While 1
    Sleep(99999)
    ;
    ; go do whatever else you want to do
    ;
WEnd



Func _clk_random()
    Local $iRnd = Random(0, 1, 1) ; get random offset, either 0 or 1
    $aCoord = StringSplit($aArray[$iRnd], ',', $STR_NOCOUNT)    ;   split x/y coords

    MouseClick("left", $aCoord[0], $aCoord[1])
    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL,"","Just clicked at " & $aCoord[0] & ',' & $aCoord[1])
EndFunc   ;==>_clk_random

Func _Exit()
    Exit
EndFunc   ;==>_Exit

I've done this and I think Christian11 may be too new to jump into arrays. This is a bit easier to understand:

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

HotKeySet("{ESC}","_Exit")

While 1
    ;Choose a new random x and y coord everytime the loop restarts
    Local $RandomX = Random(309,592,1);Choose a whole number between 309 and 592
    Local $RandomY = Random(173,631,1);Choose a whole number between 173 and 631
    ;MouseClick("Left",$RandomX,$RandomY);uncomment to click random cooordinates
    MsgBox(0,"Random Results","X: " & $RandomX & " Y: " & $RandomY);shows a messagebox everytime a new set of coords is choosen
WEnd


Func _Exit()
     Exit 0
EndFunc

I may be reading this incorrectly. You want to click either (592,173) or (309,631)

ClickRandomly();Call the ClickRandomly Function from within another part of the script

Func ClickRandomly()
    Local $RandomNumber = Random(1,2,1);Randomly generate 1 or 2
    If $RandomNumber == 1 Then
        MouseClick("Left",592,173)
    EndIF
    If $RandomNumber == 2 Then
        MouseClick("Left",309,631)
    EndIF
EndFunc

@computergroove,

It may be easier to understand but it does not do what I think the user wants.  My understanding:

randomly click one of two sets of mouse coordinates once

christian11,

Just FYI for further consideration.  If you are only dealing with two sets of coordinates then the following works fine (a simplified version of computergrooves code)

ClickRandomly();Call the ClickRandomly Function from within another part of the script

Func ClickRandomly()
    If Random(0, 1, 1) Then
        MouseClick("Left", 592, 173)
    Else
        MouseClick("Left", 309, 631)
    EndIf

EndFunc   ;==>ClickRandomly

However, if you want to expand the number of coordinates then you need something more flexible, like this...

Local $aCoords = [ _
        [592, 173], _
        [533, 170], _
        [492, 073], _
        [309, 631] _
        ]

ClickOnce()

Func ClickOnce()
    Local $idx = Random(0, UBound($aCoords) - 1, 1)
    MouseClick("left", $aCoords[$idx][0], $aCoords[$idx][1])
EndFunc   ;==>ClickOnce

Good Luck,

kylomas
