Move Mouse Action
<AMMOUSEMOVE MOVEX="number" MOVEY="number" RELATIVE="yes/no">
Moves the mouse pointer to the specified pixel coordinates.
Because it uses pixel coordinates instead of control locations. The mouse action is only recommended for use if an application cannot be automated using the Send Keystrokes Action <AMSENDKEYS> or other, more reliable Interactivity actions. This would usually only occur if the external application that is being automated did not support standard Windows conventions such as accelerator keys or hot-keys. The reason for this, is that mouse movements and clicks are dependant on window positioning and screen resolution, whereas the Send Keystrokes Action <AMSENDKEYS> is not affected by this variable.
Specifies the X pixel coordinate that the mouse pointer should be moved to.
Specifies the Y pixel coordinate that the mouse pointer should be moved to.
Specifies what the point of reference the specified coordinates are relative to.
The available options are:
screen: coordinates are relative to the upper-left hand of the screen.
window: coordinates are relative to the upper-left hand corner of the window that is currently focused when the step executes.
position: coordinates are relative to the mouse position when the step executes
This action includes the Description tab for entering a custom step description.
