Positioning of cursor to required place on an image and filling with text - (Moved)

Recommended Posts


Here I attached one image. In that three small boxes will be there. I need to fill those boxes with text. If case I'm copy(CTRL "C") pasting(CTRL "V") the image to a power point presentation. Before filling the text, I need to know the current cursor position. After then it has to fill by the text which I copied.

Moved to the appropriate forum, as the Developer General Discussion forum very clearly states:


General development and scripting discussions. If it's super geeky and you don't know where to put it - it's probably here.

Do not create AutoIt-related topics here, use the AutoIt General Help and Support or AutoIt Technical Discussion forums.

your question is vague

  1. You could draw on the picture with GDI functions
  2. You could add textboxes in powerpoint and move them to the proper position

I would advice to do 2 as its probably simpler for you. Small example but you could search for powerpoint and udf in forum

local $pptApp=objcreate("powerpoint.application")
local $pptdoc=$pptapp.presentations.add
local $pptSlide=$pptDoc.slides.add(1,1)
local $pptShape=$pptSlide.Shapes.AddShape(1, 5, 25, 100, 50) ;~ rectangle
$pptShape.TextFrame.TextRange.Text = "Some text"

Thanks @junekew

But i need to move my cursor to the 1st box after pasting this image in the screen(it can be paste anywhere on the screen). While pasting initially cursor should be in one place. From there with respect to image height and width, the cursor has to move to the 1st box. Editing no problem. I found alternate for that. Kindly give your opinion for this.
