A Peculiar Problem

4 posts in this topic

Hello, I am in a bit of a conundrum. I need to copy text from a program. I can not save the text file, and I need to do some sort of copy/paste. I tried to use the ControlGetText, but for some reason the text cant be seen by autoit. What I need to know if I can do is a MouseClickHold. If there is a function that can simulate a mouse clicking and holding until I tell it to stop, I can just use the mousewheel scroll a few times and it will work.

So my question is simply (if you decide to skip the previous illegible paragraph) is it possible to use Autoit to simulate a mouse clicking and holding until I tell it to stop

MouseClickDrag() MouseDown()

if its Copy/Paste you want Try

ClipGet()

ClipPut()

Do you mean MouseDown()?
