X and Y Coordinates

Okay, this is for my autoit script, but is hardly relevant to AutoIt

Im trying to move an image at a diagnal to the position 30, 50 on the screen

How would I do this..

like

For $i = 1 to 100

ControlMove($MyImage, $ImagePos[0] + 1, $ImagePos[1] + 1)

Next

This will not work, because it will only step 100 times, so if it is something like moving the image to 500, 700 then it will only do a 7th of the movement... How would I go about making it move the full length... Sorry if this is kinda difficult for you to understand, but im trying my best to explain....

here is a diagram:

Im trying to move X to Y. How would i make X Move in that exact path until it hits Y?

I think someone partially answered this question a while ago, but it was'nt really what i was looking for..

Do
    ControlMove($MyImage, $ImagePos[0] + 1, $ImagePos[1] + 1)
    $ImagePos[0] += 1
    $ImagePos[1] += 1
Until ($ImagePos[0] = $yourX) and ($ImagePos[1] = $yourY)

Of course, this only moves in a 45 degree angle (as of now).

This is where algebra and geometry help you...

Figure out the slope by using the start point and the end point and add appropriately... Post the start point and we'll get you all fixed up.

EDIT: On second thought, maybe I have no idea what you're asking for... :-/

use @desktopwidth and @desktophieght

get your position, subtract to get the difference

the idea is

$ImagePos[0] + $i .... not $ImagePos[0] + 1

Question

is this a control or a Window ??

better read more on ControlMove() you syntax is not right

ControlMove ( "title", "text", controlID, x, y [, width [, height]] )

8)

but if u do image[0] + $i

tput the image at the top of the window, then move... i want it to move from its current position. The code GM Gave me worked perfect.

btw, sorry for the triple posts, lol.

Oh, also, is their anyway to slow down that movement without using the Sleep() function?

By the way, about my code... you might want to change the "and" in the do/until loop to an "or", unless your pic starts out so X and Y are proportionate to the final location...

In other words, if you're trying to move it to 500, 700, you need to have the pic start at say (200, 400) - it would then move 300 pixels at a 45 degree angle to meet 500, 700. If you want to use a different angle, sin and cos are going to be your friends.

@Larry - gah, so slow.

okay, im confused on the math... could someone please imlement it into this code...

Func SpriteMove($Sprite, $EndX, $EndY)

    Do
    $ImagePos = ControlGetPos("", "", $Sprite)
    ControlMove("", "", $Sprite, $ImagePos[0] + $xadd, $ImagePos[1] + $yadd)
    $ImagePos[0] += 1
    $ImagePos[1] += 1
    Until ($ImagePos[0] = $EndX) and ($ImagePos[1] = $EndY)
    Return 0
EndFunc

I used mousemove as my example, I figure you can change it to suit your needs.

SpriteMove(0, 500, 500)
Func SpriteMove($Sprite, $EndX, $EndY)
    $CurrentPos = MouseGetPos ()
    $xadd = ($EndX - $CurrentPos[0])/100; 100 movements
    $yadd = ($EndY - $CurrentPos[1])/100; 100 movements
    Do
  ;$ImagePos = ControlGetPos("", "", $Sprite)
  ;ControlMove("", "", $Sprite, $ImagePos[0] + $xadd, $ImagePos[1] + $yadd)
    MouseMove ($CurrentPos[0] + $xadd, $CurrentPos[1] + $xadd)
    $CurrentPos[0] += $xadd
    $CurrentPos[1] += $yadd
    TrayTip ("pos", $CurrentPos[0] & @CRLF & $CurrentPos[1], 1)
    Until (Int ($CurrentPos[0]) = $EndX) And (Int ($CurrentPos[1]) = $EndY)
    Return 0
EndFunc

It's going to look a lot like Larry's in terms of math, but that's because all correct math answers look alike.

There are also more efficient methods, but I was just continuing from my initial post.

It does'nt stop at 500, 500. it kept going.... whent passed 1000.....

This is weird, for some numbers it works, but for others, it does'nt.

Thanks alot though!
