Mouse Location Pointer

10 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

EDIT: Changes

A small label that sits below your mouse that follows the cursor around. It gives exact screen coordinates if working solely on a desktop. If you work within any "active" client window, it will change coordinate options to match the current active window. This is useful if you want to find coordinates within any window or just with your desktop.

Traytooltip shows the name of the currently active window. If no active window, it defaults to "desktop".

When you press ALT + F it will create a color.txt file and enter the date, time, (x,y coords) and hex color of the point your mouse is on. It will continue to append for every alt+f press you make.

If you want to terminate the app, press Alt + ESC.

I actually started with a tooltip believe it or not. The only thing I didn't like about it was that it seemed more jerky than the label for some reason. Good alternative though, only your code doesn't support right/bottom screen bumping. :D

Made changes to the script.

You can "ESC" out of the script to terminate it.

Coordinate positions properly identify to whether or not you are working on the desktop or if you are working within another active client window.

Basically, this allows you to retrieve exact coordinates for your mouse pointer based on the currently active window or desktop.

Updated : Fixed Array issues when clicking with mouse over tabbed areas. Updated color to provide save locations for Hex and Dec.

its nice, similar to a program i made, ecpt mine is a toolbar.

when it exports to the .txt file consider useing the basic X,Y method instead. easyer for copy & pasting into scripts. nicely done
