How to Use Automation Code on PC with Different Resolution?

uuhh

I spent a long ass time creating Code for Automation.  Just to find out, the I can't use it on the device I created for, because it has a different Resolution.  

 

It would take days for me to re-code the Demensions of the code.  Is there a way to Quickly have the Script be Auto-adjusted to the new - smaller Resolution?  Cuz I can't change the resolution of the other PC to higher than 1200, and i need it to be 1920 x 1080.  I did some poking around, and couldn't find anything on how to do it. 

 

Thanks!

It depends significantly on how your script performs the automation.

If you went the (not recommended) way via MouseMove/MouseClick on absolute coordinates, then a conversion algorithm would be conceivable. A better approach would be the use of Control-ID's, since they work independently of absolute X-Y values.

Could you describe your current method more detailed?

I used Mouseclicks.  Tons of Mouseclicks with the Coordinates.  "Mouseclick("LEFT", 782, 34, 1, 10)"  Tons of those.  The co-ordinates are the main issue, given the resolution change doesn't support the coordinates.     So conversion algorithm is my best bet.

It does nothing when I run the script.  Is this how I insert the numbers? 

 

Func ConvertX($Number)
    $Resolution = WinGetClientSize("1366")
    $PosX = $Number * $Resolution[953]/1920
    Return $PosX
EndFunc

Func ConvertY($Number)
    $Resolution = WinGetClientSize("768")
    $PosY = $Number * $Resolution[953]/1080
    Return $PosY
EndFunc

As I notice, you are already looking in corresponding posts.

Maybe this might fit :

Finally, it's "just" some math ;)
