    Red face How to move mouse and click, or write. C++

    Hi everybody!

    Im am new to C++. I like it very mutch and I have a tiny litle question I want to ask you.
    I want to know how i move the mouse cursor and click with it, or mabey write with it.
    I have search for it, and i just find for WinAPI. Im using Linux and Xlib. But if there a better way, just say it

    That i gonna do is
    1. Move mouse to a blank URL-textbox.
    2. Press left-click (or right click sometimes).
    3. The C++ is gonna press "CTRL-V" and paste an Url (or just write).

    Chears!

    Depending on how much C++ you've managed to grasp, there are several libraries that would do it.
    Look for C++ Gui Libraries for linux (most of them are portable ).

    1.None of the other participants are fast and steady.
    2.The fast and unsteady suddenly falls asleep while running !

    I've find out that if i want to use the mouse, then i gonna use XWarpPointer(). But i dono know more. It's works with Xlib.

    Somebody who can post a tiny code some i can work with?

    I don't know anything about programming in Xlib ...

    but you should not try to tackle the native X library, unless you plan to do something which can't be done without it .

    What you want can easily be achieved with...say.. Qt ..
    See this Tutorial as an example..

    If you can't avoid X , read a documentation , examples are bound to be there.

    Sounds to me like you're trying to interact with a browser. And this seems like a very hack-ish way to do it. You would have to ensure that the resolution, window manager (and possibly window position) never change so the textbox always has the same position, etc.
    Most browsers I've seen usually offer some kind of IPC or plugin API which in my opinion would be both an easier and a "cleaner" way of doing it.
    Can you give us some more details on what it is you're trying to do?

    I will use that program too mutch more.
    I think i will use QT, but to make this "functions" work, I don't know.

    First of all i want to do this.
    1. Move mouse
    2. Klick right and left
    3. Write with the mouse
    4. Paste text with the mouse.
    5. Recognize a chosen color. Like
    Code:
    "if (color == 747583){ do someting.} else{ pass}
    That is what im going to work with, in QT.
