Multiple coordinates in varriable

Recommended Posts


Im working on one function which would save coordinatees of mouse into variable

Summary, if I would press F1, coordinates of mouse would save into $Pos[0], another F1 would save it into $Pos[1]....

After that I would like to call them into MouseClick

I have no idea how to deal with this. Im still learning and those deep variable arent my cup of tea



Global $Pos[]

HotKeySet('{F1}', "_AltForPos")

Func _AltForPos()
    $Pos[0] = MouseGetPos()
EndFunc   ;==>_AltForPos

Hi @Lyee, and welcome to the AutoIt forum :)

MouseGetPos() returns an array containing, in the first element of it ( $arrMousePos[0], for example ), the X position of the Mouse, and, in the second element of the array ( $arrMousePos[1], for example ), the Y position of the Mouse.

So, when you store the Mouse position ( X and Y ), you have to do something like this:

Global $arrMousePos = MouseGetPos()
_ArrayDisplay($arrMousePos, "Mouse Position")
; or
MsgBox($MB_ICONINFORMATION, "Mouse Position:", "X: " & $arrMousePos[0] & @CRLF & "Y: " & $arrMousePos[1])

Hope it helps :)


Best Regards.

You didnt get it. I know about this function.

I meant if I would press F1 it would save me for example '800, 600' another F1 would save me '420, 600'..

So it would be somehting like:

$Pos[0] = 800, 600

$Pos[1] = 420, 600

$Pos[2] = ...........

You have to work a bit with HotKeySet() and MouseGetPos()...

If you want to store the X and Y position in a variable, you have to make a Global array, in which you store the X and Y Mouse Position, and the "storage" is done from your n HotKeySet() functions :)
