Hello,
I am interested in writing a driver which will cause a mouse event to happen and thus be able to move the mouse cursur on the screen and activate left and right mouse clicks without actually having to touch my mouse. I can't explain all my reasoning for this, but I want to know how I can make windows think the mouse is moving and mouse clicks are happening.
Thank you in advance.

hi,
by driver i hope you mean dll etc as you cannnot write drivers in delphi.

to move the mouse you need to use setcursorpos() maybe with getcursorpos(0

test on a button click its something like:

var
p : tpoint;
begin
getcursorpos(p);
setcursorpos(p.x,p.y + 30);

to imitate clicking the mouse you would use

sendmessage(h,WM_LBUTTONDOWN,0,0);
    sendmessage(h,WM_LBUTTONUP,0,0);
or
WM_RBUTTONDOWN,WM_RBUTTONUP, etc..

where h is the handle of some object / window..


Regards Barry
