Use a Background Application to Perform Mouse Operations in a Foreground Application
Posted on 2004-09-15
I have a vendor supplied program which allows me to export data to a file by doing
a series of mouse operations. I'd like to have a background program which would
perform the export mouse operations periodically without my intervention. The
mouse targets are in predictable positions.
I've researched many documents on writing code to perform various mouse operations
and they seem relatively straightforward. However, I'm not sure about how to structure
the background program so that it does what I want without interfering with the
foreground application. Also, I have a feeling that such a program may have been written before, maybe many times.
Do you know of any source code that would do what I want? And if not, can you give me some guidance on how to structure my background program?
