get control under the mouse

3 posts in this topic

Hello all,

I'm looking for a script that does the following (much in the same way as AutoIt Window Info tool).

When you hover the mouse above ANY window control, it displays a tooltip beside the mouse showing the text of that control.

I know it's possible because there exist functions such as _CtrlGetByPos. How do I take that a bit further?

Thankyou!

Fidel

Post your code because code says more then your words can. SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y.

hey, that looks pretty good! I had to add this to the top of the script:

$appHandle = 0

Is that correct?

When the script is running, it shows the handle/class/x/y of a control, but it's also doing it for controls that are not in the topmost window...is there any way to fix that?

ta,

Fidel
