Interacting with minimized flash game? Any help?

11 posts in this topic

I am trying to make a script that interacts with a certain browser flash game. I want to be able to run the script while the browser window is minimized. Basically it just needs to click the mouse in a few different spots.

Is this at all possible? I know the ControlClick function won't work with flash. Any tips/examples?

Macromedia applications (exes, swf, etc) can be a mare automating, as sometimes buttons do not have report a control to click on. This is particularly true of graphical buttons with applied behaviors in Director.

My solution:

move the window to some invisible place, say, -1000,-1000 and clic on your coordinates...

this probably requires some pixelsearch to ensure a match.

That is an interesting solution Ivan. I think I might try that.

Actually, I tried it, but the mouse will not click off the screen. If I put it to say, click on -1000. 500 it will just click on 0, 500

Any other ideas? :D

There is an old UDF in the scripts and scraps sections if the forum that is suppose to click in minimized windows. I think it is call _MouseClickPlus().

OK, I'm back.

I've been away a few days. I've a couple of flash swfs that do not report the buttons as controls, perhaps because they are graphics with button behaviours attached to them.

I'll try my suggestion posted above in this thread, as I believe I got it to work ages ago. I remember I applied the same concept on a FileMaker application, which posed another nightmare for automation, so I'm quite confident it's possible.

In any case, by now I believe there's very little that can't be done with autoit.
