using GUIGetCursorInfo

3 posts in this topic

If I run the script below and then start up another script which has a window title "test" I thought I would be able to get the mouse position in the test window like this.

#Include <GuiConstants.au3>

Dim $c[4]
$q = guicreate("cursor position")
$l = guictrlcreatelabel("",10,10,100,20)
guisetstate()
WinWaitActive("test");wait for my test app to start

$h = WinGetHandle("test");get its handle

while GUIGetMsg() <> $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

 $c = GUIGetCursorInfo($h)
 if IsArray($c) Then;show the position of the mouse in the test window
    guictrlsetdata($l,"x= " & $c[0] & ", y= " & $c[1] & " ,buttons = " & $c[2] & ", " & $c[3])
 EndIf

WEnd

GUIGetCursorINfo($h) never returns an array.

What am I doing wrong?

GUIGetCursorInfo only works on GUIs created by the same script.

Instead you can use MouseCoordMode (Opt) and MouseGetPos to handle the

mouse-positions. Use _IsPressed to detect mouseclicks and WinActive to check

if the "test"-window is active.

Thanks Helge, the help file wasn't clear to me on this point.
