Mouse Click w/o moving mouse

5 posts in this topic

Question: Is there a way to send a mouse click to a particular window's (not using ControlClick) without the mouse physically moving (e.g. the mouse remains in the top right corner of the screen, and it sends a click event to the start menu)?

It's a little complicated to try to explain what I am doing, but the above example is about as clear as I can make the question.

Thanks for any help!

Mouseclick actually uses the mouse, the only other alternative is 'ControlClick' or a UDFs such as '_ClickInControl()' <--never used it though, so it might move the mouse too...

If you just want the illusion of the mouse not moving you could click the Start button then return the mouse to its original position, the user would only see a flicker. Alternatively, if you need to click the start button, try the Windows key :whistle:.

Most likely this if for the internet

If so, use the IE.au3 Library to make the "Mouse Click"

It's not. It's used with a secured console window to select text and copy that text to a clipboard. And yes, I do know about stdin/stdout, but as I said - it is a secured console application, and this is the only thing that I've had successfully work in the 5 months I've been working on this project.
