*Capturing* mouse coords from a drag start and end position...

Recommended Posts


I'm trying to develop a gesture-based system for my new tablet laptop that I will use with my various AutoIT coding projects I've been developing.

My app will have it's own GUI with numerous controls on it, one of which is a large picture. I'd like to know what I need to do to capture the start position and end position of a drag operation when the user clicks on the picture even if the drag goes off the picture.

I'll use the x positions to determine left or right gestures (yes, kinda like how the iPhone and iTouch work).

Maybe something like this, not sure if it suits your needs.

Dim $Start[2],$End[2]
If $Info[4]=$LargePicture And $Info[2] Then
    While _IsPressed("01")
