Random X, Y coordinates within a given elliptical area

Recommended Posts

Good Morning All,

I have - in my opinion - a very strange and difficult situation - been up since 3 AM so that doesn't help either lol. 

I would like to do a randomized mouseclick within an elliptical area. I would need different x, y coordinates returned within this given elliptical area.

How could I possibly do this in AutoIT? My brain is melting from just the thought now - been working on this for hours... I don't ask for help unless I can't figure it out myself.

Thanks in advance! Much appreciated - I really need to get this figured out - Any examples would be appreciated!

;Algorithm: Calculate pseudo-random point inside an ellipse
;Generate a random point inside a circle of radius 1. This can be done by taking a random angle phi in the interval [0, 2*pi) and a random value rho in the interval [0, 1) and compute
;x = sqrt(rho) * cos(phi)
;y = sqrt(rho) * sin(phi)
;The square root in the formula ensures a uniform distribution inside the circle.
;Scale x and y to the dimensions of the ellipse
;x = x * width/2.0
;y = y * height/2.0
