ControlClick vs MouseClick

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know why

ControlClick($WinName, "", "", "primary", "1", $x1, $y1)

works, I'd say 60% of the time but 

MouseClick($MOUSE_CLICK_PRIMARY, $x1, $y1, 1)

works 100% of the time.

$x1 & $y1 have the same coordinates as I call the same function. When I comment out "ControlClick" and activate "MouseClick" it always works, just trying to see if there is something I am missing or some over path I can take.

Func iSearch_Click($FileName, $T_X, $T_Y, $B_X, $B_Y)
    Do
        $result = _ImageSearchArea($FileName, 1, $T_X, $T_Y, $B_X, $B_Y, $x1, $y1, 10, 0)
        If $result = 1 Then
            ControlClick($WinName, "", "", "primary", "1", $x1, $y1)
            ;MouseClick($MOUSE_CLICK_PRIMARY, $x1, $y1, 1)
            Sleep(100)
        EndIf
    Until $result = 1
EndFunc

I am just trying to not have the mouse move to the spot and then click, I'd rather it be 100% independent of the mouse.

What happens with ControlClick if you remove the $x and $y vars? If you're just using a ControlClick on a control you don't need the coordinates.

There are several different options to "click" on which is why I am doing an ImageSearch to get the $x & $y vars to state which "box" to click

 

I call this function a total of 5 times and the 1st & 2nd attempt, it clicks the correct box, 3rd time it doesn't, 4th yes and 5th no.

I just added "MouseMove($x1, $y1, 1)"  into the if statement and the mouse moves to the correct spot 100% of the time, so I do not know what else to do

Is this a program you're interacting with, a web page, etc.?

 


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.

If you are using an Emulator similar to the thread from  jplumb or if you are also jplumb then you need to remember that the emulator has to interpret each click then pass it on to the actual app.


hmm... I guess I have to have a signature...

@BigDaddyO rather than throwing out a dozen possibilities based on a guess of what the OP is trying to do, it is usually better to let them explain it to us so we can help.

@Yirrlaar as BrewManNH has asked, we can only help with a detailed description of what you are trying to do. What app/webpage/etc are you trying to automate? What does the image look like that you are trying to do the search on? Why do you need to do it 5 times? Help us help you.

Sorry for the confusion but I figured it out, there was a window offset I was not including in the ControlClick fucntion.

MouseClick($MOUSE_CLICK_PRIMARY, $x1, $y1, 1)
ControlClick($WinName, "", "", "primary", "1", $x1-$xoffset, $y1-$yoffset)

I was looking into the dimensions of specific box vs the actual window background, once I had figured that out, things went swimmingly.
