Problem with MouseClick

3 posts in this topic

Ok, so I am making an automatic database entry program and I get this bug

When I tell the program to click at location X,Y, sometimes it will just move to it and NOT click it. I tested it thoroughly and it's pretty much at one X,Y location that it keeps doing that over and over. That location is after the program switched screen (from one internet page to the database).

Since it happens in a particular app, it is more likely the app is sensitive to the delay options, like: MouseClickDelay, MouseClickDownDelay, MouseClickDragDelay.

Look those up in the help file and try a little tweaking.

Timing could also be involved if the window being clicked was just opened. There might be cause to try things like WinWaitActive, or MouseMove(), followed by a Sleep(), then MouseClick(), etc.

If this is being done in IE, then you want to get sync'd with the browser operations by things like _IELoadWait().

Thank, figured out the MouseClickDownDelay this morning, the 10ms down was too short for firefox, increased it to 100 and it's perfect now, 100% success after 150 database entry.
