Skipping parameters

5 posts in this topic

This is, I hope, something simple but I'm not finding the information on it.   I want to skip some parameters.  My specific application currently is that I want to click the mouse 50 times in a row (without using a step function) but I want it to click wherever the mouse is.  So I could tell it (fifty times) to mouseclick ("left") but I would rather mouseclick ("left",x,y,50) without defining an x and y position.  Whenever I try just skipping them [e.g. mouseclick ("left",,,50)] I get an error.

I'm pretty sure you can not omit the actual passing of a parameter.

You can however...

MouseClick("Primary", Default, Default, 50)

Or wrap it...

_MouseClick(50)

Func _MouseClick($iclicks)
    MouseClick("Primary", Default, Default, $iclicks)
EndFunc

The real question there is: is there any legitimate reason to need to click 50 times in a row without moving the mouse?

Answer: yes but only for cheating at some game.

Can you give the reason why you need this? Seriously. If it is for a game, then please do not waste our time and yours for any game automation is against forum rules. If it isn't and IS for a legitimate reason then I'm interested for I like to learn. (BTW - saying it is just for "learning" purposes for yourself - that will not be accepted as a reason for obviously you want to use it for something.)

So - the floor is yours eaglesong3.
