Question regarding autoit

12 posts in this topic

Hello all,

I have yet to download autoit, but from what I've been told it is truly an amazing tool.

I just have one question, can autoit run scripts/macros on multiple minimized programs?

in most cases yes... depending on what you are wanting to do.


[u]Helpful tips:[/u]If you want better answers to your questions, take the time to reproduce your issue in a small "stand alone" example script whenever possible. Also, make sure you tell us 1) what you tried, 2) what you expected to happen, and 3) what happened instead.[u]Useful links:[/u]BrettF's update to LxP's "How to AutoIt" pdfValuater's Autoit 1-2-3 Download page for the latest versions of Autoit and SciTE[quote]<glyph> For example - if you came in here asking "how do I use a jackhammer" we might ask "why do you need to use a jackhammer"<glyph> If the answer to the latter question is "to knock my grandmother's head off to let out the evil spirits that gave her cancer", then maybe the problem is actually unrelated to jackhammers[/quote]

Something as simple as simulating an auto left-click on a minimized window. I don't think a coordinates system would be needed.

Anyone?

I just want to know if what I outlined in the third post is even possible... or maybe someone can suggest a different program. I have an auto-clicker, but it only utilizes what ever is currently "full screen"

Thank you =)

Alright, so I've checked out the helpfile, it's pretty sweet. I found the mouse simulation functions, good and all. Is there a specific place I need to look for instruction on placing delays and loops? Also, where would I find the function that allows it to run in x app vs y app, or is that dependant on where you place the script? (Like if I put the script in a WoW folder, is it going to know to run it for that application)

Yeah, total newb I know, but I'm learning!

Teach yourself with the help file, the tutorials, this forum etc.

Don't turn this thread into a monument of your inability to learn :)

Loops can be found in "Loop Statements", if you want your commands to run in a spelcial window then you have to use commands that have a parameter for that, like ControlSend(), ControlClick() etc....

ok, ok... wait a sec...

you want an autoclicker that clicks on something that isn't actually on screen...? can you do that normally...?

if you want the cursor to click on something, the cursos actually has to be on it... >_>

You con't need the cursor to click on stuff, see ControlClick()
