I am looking for a way to launch a program based on mouse co-ordinates, i,e. move the mouse to the far right of the screen and it launchs a program.

I don't even know where to begin with this so any code snippets etc would be appreciated.

Many thanks

Actually I have just thought, the reason i want this is I have 2 PC,s 2 Monitors and 1 keyboard and mouse. I have to double tap Scroll Lock then Up arrow to get the KVM to swap the mouse and keyboard over to the other PC.
Would it be possible to have a program that automates those keystrokes when the mouse is over to the very edge of the screen.

I don't believe so because I don't think the SendKeys function actually creates pulses for the keyboard itself. It fakes key strokes to the programs. The KVM switch actually "watches" for that key sequence. I may be wrong but I don't think so. The only thing I can think of is maybe getting a keyboard that would let you program a macro key to do the key sequence you need. But you would still need to press at least one key.

Good luck.

ahhh ok I see what you mean, it never crossed my mind, I had just been looking at the sendkeys. Hmmm this could be a pain then, maybe thats why I couldn't find anything similar to what i was after on the net.

I will keep looking.

Cheers for that,
