Simple Mouse Calls Don't Work

5 posts in this topic

Have used AutoIt successfully in the past.  Just installed on Win 8.1 64 bit.  Selected to use (recommended) 32 bit options while installing (should still work I think).  MouseMove / MouseClick don't work.  They return 1, but mouse does nothing.  Script:

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 2) ; partial match
Opt("MouseCoordMode",0)   ; relative to active window

WinActivate("My Window")
WinWaitActive("My Window")

If WinActive("My Window") Then
    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "WinActive" & @CRLF & "Window is active.")  ; good
Else
    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "WinActive" & @CRLF & "Window not active.")
 EndIf

Local $v1
$v1 = MouseClick("", 141, 123)
MsgBox(0, "Click Result", String($v1)) ; 1, but mouse did nothing

On its own

MouseMove(0,0)

Does it work?

It works if placed above the call to WinActivate.  After that call it no longer works.

BWood,

And what is this window you are activating? It is well-known that certain types of windows have anti-bot measures to prevent scripts from working within them.

And just in case my suspicions are correct, I suggest you read the Forum rules before you reply.

It's my/our own (commercial) application; just joined the team.  I guess there is just something funny about the window then.  Thanks.
