MouseGetPos Help

4 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I've looked over the help file a little bit, and I've found what command I need, but I have no idea how to put it together. Here's what I want

Dialog box w/instructions ==> User moves mouse to desired coord ==> User clicks left mouse button ==> MouseGetPos records position ===> Recorded position is assigned a variable

Anyone know how to do this? The concept seems easy, and I'm actually embarassed that I cannot figure it out. Please help?

I know that I need an if statement (I think) so when the 01 button is pressed (left mouse), then AutoIt will record the coord and place it in a variable.

Something like this?

#include <Misc.au3>

$dll = DllOpen("user32.dll")

While 1
    If _IsPressed("01", $dll) Then
        $cord = MouseGetPos()
        MsgBox(0, "", "x = " & $cord[0] & " y = " & $cord[1] )
    EndIf
    
    Sleep(10)
WEnd
DllClose($dll)
It seems like it'll work but I'm at work right now so I can't test it :lmao:

What is the purpose of the.dll part? Is it neccessary?

Only if you want to use _IsPressed().
