    Is this programme do-able....by me!

    Hello C programming gurus!!

    I want to write a small C programme that in theory sounds simple enough, and hopefully you can let me know if its viable. I did some C programming a few years ago, so I'm not a complete newbie, but lets just say I'm a little rusty

    What the program will do:

    In a windows application, it will read pixels at specific x,y points and then mimic mouse clicks at certain x,y points.


    []What I've found out so far:[/B]

    I'll need to use getpixel to read the pixels!
    I've found some info on mouse clicks.

    If I intend to have this program work on a windows application will it be hard to program if I've not done it before??

    Will the mouse click and get pixel be easy enough?

    These are kind of vague questions, but I'm still doing some research.

    I would loved to have posted a thread entitled 'Write me a C program that does...' - but I though that'd be a bit cheeky

    Any help you can offer would be great, as would any links you may have for achieving my goal.

    Ahh, I see my first mistake was to post this in the wrong forum!

    Still at least its a C forum - I originally posted this on the The Uruguayan Pig Famers Forum, but didn't get a response for months

    Just to clarify...the program will be reading from/sending to a different windows program.

    i dunno, win32 api is pretty harsh. once you do grasp the win32api, then i think you could succeed. mouse handling is pretty simple in it from what i see.
