Registering Clicks Outside of GUI

Recommended Posts

I've been at this for a while and I haven't yet discvovered how to do this.

I'm trying to get the position of a click that is outside the GUI that i have like lets say... An IE window, or a Firefox window or any other thing that isn't the GUI for the script.

I have this

Func _Select()
    MsgBox( 64, "Click", "Click At the Desired Corners", 2000)
    $i = 1
    $clickpoint = String("Top Right: ")
        $msg = GuiGetMsg()
                $pos = MouseGetPos()
                $tooltip = ToolTip($ClickPoint & $pos[0] & "," & $pos[1],$pos[0]+25,$pos[1]+25)

        If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_PRIMARYDOWN then 
            $pos = mousegetpos()
            $i += 1
            elseif $i = 1 Then 
                GuiCtrlSetData($in1, $pos[0])
                GuiCtrlSetData($in2, $pos[1])
            elseif $i = 2 Then
                $clickpoint = String("Bottom Left: ")
                GuiCtrlSetData($in3, $pos[0])
                GuiCtrlSetData($in4, $pos[1])           
            ElseIf $i = 3 Then
                $clickpoint = String("Top Right: ")
                GuiCtrlSetData($in5 , $pos[0])
                GuiCtrlSetData($in6, $pos[1])
            Elseif $i = 4 Then
            $clickpoint = String("Bottom Left: ")
                GuiCtrlSetData($in7, $pos[0])
                GuiCtrlSetData($in8, $pos[1])
    Until $i = 5
        $tooptip = ToolTip("")

But because it is GUIGetMsg() it only gets the msg for moy GUI. I dont really know how to do otherwise.

look in the help file for Mousegetpos and _ispressed

#include <GuiConstants.au3>
#include <Misc.au3>
$dll = DllOpen("user32.dll")
$Main = GUICreate ("test", 200,150 )

GUISetState ()

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop
    $a = MouseGetPos ()
        If _IsPressed("01", $dll) Then
        MsgBox(0,"_IsPressed", "Mouse position is"&@CRLF& $a[0] &@CRLF& $a[1])

Thanks, I just did try that method. I do however have one problem with that method. And that is if u keep holding down the mouse It cycles through all 4 times

and skips 3 of them because it's in a loop.

I had to add a sleeper to it and that just made it slower, also if I were to hold my mouse it would also cycle through it.

Is there just a simple User has clicked or way to get around this obnoctious loop.

Btw thx for the reply.

I think I may know what you mean by annoying loop, if you mean what I think, then you can avoid it like this:

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#Include <Misc.au3>

$GUI = GUICreate("Form1", 165, 113, 193, 125)
$Label = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 32, 24, 36, 17)
$click = 0
While 1
    If $click <> GUICtrlRead($Label) Then GUICtrlSetData($Label, $click)
    If _IsPressed(01) Then
        While _IsPressed(01);  WAIT WHILE BUTTON IS HELD
        $click += 1

This waits after the click until the click is released.
