Mouse Coords not always the same (set/get)

03 Jul 2020, 07:45

Hello,

With PC and 4:3 Monitor it works as it should (set and get are the same), but with Laptop and same Monitor on VGA port, i get this result:

CoordMode, Mouse

Px:=101
Py:=101

MouseMove, %Px%, %Py%
MouseGetPos, MouseX, MouseY

msgbox Input:`n%Px%, %Px%`n`nOutput:`n%MouseX%, %MouseY%

Hallo,
only a try:

Code: Select all

CoordMode, Mouse

Px:=101
Py:=101

DllCall("SetCursorPos", "int", Px, "int", Py)
MouseGetPos, MouseX, MouseY

msgbox Input:`n%Px%, %Px%`n`nOutput:`n%MouseX%, %MouseY%

Thank you, this works. Is Mousemove not working 100%?


Updated the code:

Code: Select all

CoordMode, Mouse

Px:=101
Py:=101

MouseMove, %Px%, %Py%, 0
;DllCall("SetCursorPos", "int", Px, "int", Py)
sleep, -1
MouseGetPos, MouseX, MouseY

result= Input with Mousemove:`n%Px%, %Px%`n`nOutput:`n%MouseX%, %MouseY%



;MouseMove, %Px%, %Py%, 0
DllCall("SetCursorPos", "int", Px, "int", Py)
sleep, -1
MouseGetPos, MouseX, MouseY

result = %result%`n=================`nInput with DllCall:`n%Px%, %Px%`n`nOutput:`n%MouseX%, %MouseY%

msgbox %result%

So far I was satisfied with MouseMove (I'm not a gamer).
In https://www.autohotkey.com/docs/commands/MouseMove.htm
DllCall("SetCursorPos"... is pointed out as an alternative method for moving the mouse pointer,
which may work better with certain multi-monitor configurations.
