DONE: mouse tracking multi app
« on: January 04, 2008, 12:09:06 PM »
Ok my basic idea for this program is something like this:
there needs to be start and stop hotkey
I want to run multiple versions of an application at the same time say 5 or so

something like this

in window1 on LMB down x,y, cords r stored
on LMB up the x, y, cords (from LMB down) are sent to window2, window3.... via a just a click command

can more than 1 window be defined as the active window using ahk? some kind of forced state or something
Also to keep the cords the same I was thinking of using something like TransOther v1.1  and having the windows over each other

This looks like something that falls into coding snacks context.
I can't quite understand exactly what you mean, though... Could you give an example of how this would be useful?

basically i just want my mouse movements and an action or two recorded and duplicated on the other versions of the app

with some apps like a program at my work (beams) u cant use copy and paste, u can but its not ctrl c, ctrl v, it only supports mouse coppying

so this way i could load up 5 versions of the app and have ahk copy the mouse events.

any of that make sense?

Oh! Now i understand :)

I think there's a better solution for you.

AHK comes with a "autoscriptwriter", which is included in the extras/ directory.
That allows you to record your actions in a window, and then have them reproduced in the other windows.

Another great option (and possibly a better one), is skrommel's doover, which does basically the same as autoscriptwriter but might be easier to use.

PS: here's the doover thread, probably it would be useful.
