    simluate mouse press

    ive lloked through the forums and a code site but i cant find anything that helps me, how do i make a dos program that simulates the left mouse button being pressed, i know its possible with the keyboard (http://www.codeproject.com/system/ke...asp#xx848776xx) but im not sure with a mouse. im using borland free command line compiler with windows 98, if thats any help.
    thx a lot for any help.

    I don't believe that console applications can interact with a mouse.

    You should be able to include windows.h and then call SendMessage. WM_LBUTTONDOWN and WM_RBUTTONDOWN are the events. What I'm sure of is what window you'd want to simulate the mouse click on.

    ya microsoft suks at explaining things, i do a lot better with examples, they basically give me the syntaxt and some stuff you can put in there, and i cant understand how to do it right, ive searched the web and tried a few things but i cant figure out how to get this code to work, here it is.

    VOID mouse_event(
    DWORD dwflag,
    DWORD dx,
    DWORD dy,
    DWORD dwData,
    ULONG_PTR dwExtraInfo
    );

    can anyone just tell me how to fill thiss out?

    Google is often a good place to start when looking for sample code.
    Code:
    SetCursorPos(10, 10); /* Move the cursor to 10, 10 */
    mouse_event(MOUSEEVENTF_LEFTDOWN, 0, 0, 0, 0); /* Left button down. */
    mouse_event(MOUSEEVENTF_LEFTUP, 0, 0, 0, 0); /* Left button up. */
