Recommended Posts

So, basicly i want to detect GUI AND use it's coordinates only. I hope that my image will explain it good enough.

@eKolin I am guessing you are looking to use Mouse functions. Look at MouseCoordMode in the help file to set it relative to the active window.

Or, you can give a better explanation of what you're trying to accomplish and we can help you get away from all the messy Mouse-work altogether ;)

@JLogan3o13 My goal is to use the interface coordinates instead of whole monitor coordinates = I can move the GUI without a worry that the coordinates will be incorrect. Thanks in advance ;)

I understand your goal; my question is why must you use Mouse functions on the GUI (is this a GUI you've created?). If you get the ID of the control you want to interact with, and use the Control* commands, it won't matter where the GUI is moved to :)

@JLogan3o13 My bad, i wasn't familiar with this function, basicly what i wanted was:

Opt(MouseCoordMode,0)

I don't really understand the difference between parameters 0 and 2 (probbably because i lack english skills) Can you explain please?

0 = relative coords to the active window
1 = (default) absolute screen coordinates
2 = relative coords to the client area of the active window

@eKolin as I tell my son who is just beginning his journey into scripting - sometimes it is better to do it yourself than to have someone tell you. Mock up a script and try out the difference between 0 and 2; it should become pretty apparent to you. :)
