A very simple question - for you - a nightmare for me!

Recommended Posts


Hello everybody

Some 4 hours ago I loaded down the Autoit. Before - I did not even now that something cool like this is available.

Reason I did so was: I want to automate a mouseclick.

I also found the following sample program on this webpage:


; Double click at the current mouse pos



; Double click at 0,500

MouseClick("left", 0, 500, 100)


As you certainly immediately see this is clicking on the possition where I open the programm and then moves left. Now I tried a lot of things to adjust it to my needs but it wont work. Therefore - before I invest another 4 hours to come nowhere - which most of you might be able to do in 2 min. here my question:

How should a scirpt look like which does the following:

Click at a defined position e.g. in the middle of the right lower side of the screen (x, y coordinates - but where do I have to place them and what are the numbers to be used).

Stay there. Means not moving away and then click again after about 10 sec. and this for an unlimited nummber of times.

It would be great having a placeholder (figure) with which I could easily change the time between two clicks (e.g. 5 sec. min. up to 20 sec. max.)

Simple said: I need an automated mouseclick at the same position on the screen after and after again.

Could somebody please help me? I am just a simple automechanic from Switzerland beeing happy when our office Navition program is not breaking down when I write a bill :)

Any support is very much apprichiated.

Thank's a lot

HotKeySet("{ESC}", "Terminate")     ;give yourself an exit by pressing Esc

$wait = 10000                       ;length of the sleep period in milliseconds
$x =                                ;set the x-coord
$y =                                ;set the y-coord

While 1                             ;initiate a never-ending loop
    MouseClick("left", $x, $y, 2)   ;clicks the left mouse button twice
    Sleep($wait)                    ;waits a given amount of time
WEnd                                ;close the loop

Func Terminate()
    MsgBox(0, "Exit", "Press OK to exit script.")

You can use AU3Info (included in your download) to find the appropriate x and y coordinates. Cheers.
