Autoclick program RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello!

    I want to create a simple autoclick program. What I want to to is a program that makes a click were the mouse cursor is at every 5 minutes (or at any defined period of time) for instance.

    I searched the web but I didnt find any examples.

    Thank you!

  • Assuming you're dealing around your form, because IMHO creating a program that clicks everywhere on the screen (that can be done using API like here) sounds a irritating experience for a computer user. So, if you'd like to click around your programmatically, create a MouseEventArgs and use a timer like this:

    See my answer here:


    For example click on every 5 minutes which means 300000 ms interval that is the value must be set as Timer's interval, then:

     Private Sub Timer1_Tick(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Timer1.Tick
            Dim arg As New MouseEventArgs(Windows.Forms.MouseButtons.Left, _
       1, Windows.Forms.Cursor.Position.X, Windows.Forms.Cursor.Position.Y, Nothing)
     End Sub

    ' See a proof (optional), move your cursor around (inside) your form WITHOUT clicking and wait till timer's click event fires:

     Private Sub Form1_click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs) Handles MyBase.MouseClick
            Dim g As Graphics = Me.CreateGraphics
            g.DrawString("X", New Font("Arial", 20), Brushes.Black, e.Location.X, e.Location.Y)
    End Sub

    ..a X will be drawn programmatically which is caused by mouse-click simulation.
