Simple Question, but newbie

6 posts in this topic

Hi, I'm new to the forums but not completely new to Autoit. I've never really done anything complicated with Autoit, so my question might have an extremely trivial solution.

Im writing a script, I want it to randomly click spots within a defined area

example: I have a box on the screen, say (200, 210, 300, 310) [x,y(top left), x,y(bottom right)] and I want it to repeatedly click in between that box at random spot using the Mouseclick function or other clicking functions. How would I do this?

((I want it to say: Click "239, 284" then 256, 301....and so on and so forth....inside a given area at random...))

or easily put, I want random clicking, but controlled as to where the randomness extends to

I know the example isn't aimed at a specific situation but hopefully the idea of what I'm trying to do passes through. I just want to know if it can be done and how, I don't want it specifically done for my project.

Any help is appreciated, Thanks

Try this -

$x = random(239, 256)
$y = random(121, 150)
$speed = Random(1, 4);so the movement of the mouse is at random speed too
Mouseclick($x, $y, 1, $speed)

Also, look in the example script section for AutoIt 1 2 3. It is a sticky. It will teach you the basics.

I had similar problem in identifying text on image/picture on active windows such as webpage on realtime.

Hope this post could discuss more further... :)

I mean, I can select click the picture without saving first the image(like other post using OCR script).
