Hi,

1. Mouseposition
with the SetCursorPos(X,Y) function you can control the position. The SetCursorPos function moves the cursor to the specified screen coordinates. If the new coordinates are not within the screen rectangle set by the most recent ClipCursor function, Windows automatically adjusts the coordinates so that the cursor stays within the rectangle.

Example:
SetCursorPos(0,0);
This sets the cursor to the top left corner of the screen.


2. Mouseclicking

Following function "remote-leftclicks" on the current mouse-position:

mouse_event(MOUSEEVENTF_LEFTDOWN, 0, 0, 0, 0)

And this for right mbutton:
mouse_event(MOUSEEVENTF_RIGHTDOWN, 0, 0, 0, 0);

And this for middle mbutton:
mouse_event(MOUSEEVENTF_MIDDLEDOWN, 0, 0, 0, 0);


So if you want to doubleclick, you must use the following code:
mouse_event(MOUSEEVENTF_LEFTDOWN, 0, 0, 0, 0)
mouse_event(MOUSEEVENTF_LEFTUP, 0, 0, 0, 0)
mouse_event(MOUSEEVENTF_LEFTDOWN, 0, 0, 0, 0)
mouse_event(MOUSEEVENTF_LEFTUP, 0, 0, 0, 0)


Hope that helps!

greets,
UTA

I suggest using the Mouse variable in D6 (and later newer versions) because of cross-platform compatibility
