Autoit Mouse Wheel Scroll to Mouse Movement

Recommended Posts

So I'm trying to make a script that will move my mouse when I scroll. I know that's weird, but I have my reasons. What I have so far can detect when I'm moving my mouse, but then when I tell the script to make my mouse move whenever it detects scroll activity it freezes. probably because of some feedback loop.

Anyway, If anyone on here wants to help, I'm at a loss of how to solve this problem. Like maybe when it is about to take the action of moving the mouse it could stop detection for a bit, idk. but I don't know how to do that.



#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <Misc.au3>
#include <GUIConstants.au3>

Global Const $MSLLHOOKSTRUCT = $tagPOINT & ";dword mouseData;dword flags;dword time;ulong_ptr dwExtraInfo"

Global $currentEvent

Global $hDLL = DllOpen("user32.dll")

#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=

;Register callback
$hKey_Proc = DllCallbackRegister("_Mouse_Proc", "int", "int;ptr;ptr")
$hM_Module = DllCall("kernel32.dll", "hwnd", "GetModuleHandle", "ptr", 0)
$hM_Hook = DllCall("user32.dll", "hwnd", "SetWindowsHookEx", "int", $WH_MOUSE_LL, "ptr", DllCallbackGetPtr($hKey_Proc), "hwnd", $hM_Module[0], "dword", 0)

#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

While 1


Func _Mouse_Proc($nCode, $wParam, $lParam)
    Local $info, $mouseData
    If $nCode < 0 Then
        $ret = DllCall("user32.dll", "long", "CallNextHookEx", "hwnd", $hM_Hook[0], _
                "int", $nCode, "ptr", $wParam, "ptr", $lParam)
        Return $ret[0]

    $info = DllStructCreate($MSLLHOOKSTRUCT, $lParam)
    $mouseData = DllStructGetData($info, 3)
        Case $wParam = $WM_MOUSEWHEEL
            If _WinAPI_HiWord($mouseData) > 0 Then
                ;Wheel Up
                $currentEvent = "WheelUp"

                ;Wheel Down
                $currentEvent = "WheelDown"
                If _IsPressed("02", $hDLL) Then


    if $currentEvent == "WheelUp" then
       $pos = MouseGetPos()
    $ret = DllCall("user32.dll", "long", "CallNextHookEx", "hwnd", $hM_Hook[0], _
            "int", $nCode, "ptr", $wParam, "ptr", $lParam)
    Return $ret[0]
EndFunc   ;==>_Mouse_Proc

Func OnAutoItExit()
    DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "UnhookWindowsHookEx", "hwnd", $hM_Hook[0])
    $hM_Hook[0] = 0
    $hKey_Proc = 0
EndFunc   ;==>OnAutoItExit

Thanks for this, But I should have mentioned in my original post: that I already tried this, I couldn't get it to work the way I wanted because I don't want the mouse to have to be over a gui, to detect if it's wheel is scrolling or not. I want it to be able to detect and respond to the scroll regardless of where the mouse is on the screen.

Can I do that with the example's you've shown here?
