Input Robot

version (68.1 KB) by Joe Zhong
A robot to help you click mouse and typing in other application's window


Updated 06 Jul 2007

No License

If you are fed up to clicking buttons just because Matlab hasn't offer a function to control other Data Acquisition applications,and you don't want to spend days to write a interface DLL, this is the DLL you are looking for!

It does the job in simple way:
1. it can insert a string into the Window's keyboard input string,as if you have typed the string from the keyboard.
2. It can move the mouse to where you specified and do a mouse click.
3. It can change a window's show status, i.e minimum, maximum, or just bring it to the foreground from the back of a pile of windows.
Help file and source code are in the package.
It is only be tested under Windows XP sp2.
