Mouse position

Postby VicFan » Mon Aug 09, 2021 1:33 pm

It would be really helpful to add a function to save the current mouse position (absolute X-Position and absolute Y-Position) into 2 variables. This could allow the script to return the mouse to whatever position it has previously been at by using the Mouse Move function with those 2 variables.

You can do this right now.
Look at my example
Save the text of the task to a file and use menu Task->Import to import the task into RoboTask.
Do not forget to enable the task after importing.

To run the task press CTRL+ALT+P. the task saves the mouse position and restores at the end of task.
Code: Select all

It is during the task that I want to save the mouse position, not just restore the mouse to position before the script executes.

Here is a use case: during execution the script an object is deleted and I want to create another object of a different type in same place as the original. The script can't do that because the object no longer exists that it found the original position to begin with.

Sorry, please delete my reply asking how to do it during the script. I just read your reply and didn't try the code. Sorry
