IDEA (In-Progress): Mouse Instructional Helper
« on: February 08, 2008, 01:58:37 PM »
First off I must thank Skrommel for the help he has given me thus far. I have taken what he has given me and I have twisted it a little more to provide the product I desire.

1. The functionality I am still lacking in this script is the ability to have functioning animated gif's.

2. There is an issue I am having with displaying the updated action. The code seams to generate a white background one time and a transparent background the next.

This is meant to be a draggable alwaysontop window (Ctrl + Left Mouse Click to Move) that displays the mouse actions being performed on the system.

Here is my code and I have played with aniGIF.dll and control to little success. (My mind is still to small for it I guess.) Any ideas or input would be greatly welcomed.

;ShowMouse.ahk
; Shows mouse actions
;Skrommel @ 2008

      }
    }
}

{
  SHOW("Double Click")
  Return
}

  SHOW("Left Drag")
;Else
;  SHOW("")
Return

~*RButton Up::
MouseGetPos,rux,ruy
If (rux>rdx+dragx Or rux<rdx-dragx Or ruy>rdy+dragy Or ruy<rdy-dragy)
  SHOW("Right Drag")

  Global picid

  GuiControl,,picid, %text%.gif
  WinShow,ahk_id %guiid%
  SetTimer,HIDE,%hide%
}


HIDE:
  SetTimer,HIDE,Off
  WinHide,ahk_id %guiid%
Return

The gifs are the animations that are to go with program to give a visual aid to those watching so they have an idea what is being performed with the mouse. A simple reminder that while Skrommel may have wrote the simple basic version I have played a fair bit and probably broke the entire set of coding rules in getting things to where I am close to realizing this project as finished.
