    Default Robot

    First question was that I was trying to get the mouse to right click via java.awt.Robot.




    Also, how would I get Java to notice where it's positioned at? Like if it's in a certain place which has certain pixel colors.


    Now i'm stuck on this.
            		Color col = new Color(41, 47, 7);
            	        if(rob.getPixelColor(x, y) == col) {
            	            System.out.println("It worked..");
            	        }
            	        System.out.println(rob.getPixelColor(x, y));

    And the print out is:
    java.awt.Color[r=41,g=47,b=7]

    It keeps printing that out, whereas I want it to print out "It worked..". How else would I do this?

    make the mouse right click
    That must be in the API doc. What methods look like they would do that?

    Same answer for the second question. Look at the methods in the API doc.

    Have you tried looking? The class is called Robot. Emperor_Xyn is trying to help. Please do some research yourself for how to use the Robot class. If you can't find something you're looking for in the docs, try searching the internet for it, then post any last questions you have on a forum and include any information you found while doing research.

    I did look at it though, and I can't seem to find out how to right click.

    Default Re: Robot

    Parameters:
    buttons - the Button mask; a combination of one or more of these flags:

    InputEvent.BUTTON1_MASK
    InputEvent.BUTTON2_MASK
    InputEvent.BUTTON3_MASK
    Right out of the API. 1 I believe is left click 2 middle button 3 is right click. I'm 80% sure although I haven't messed around with robot too much.

    Give it a try, 2 and 3 might be switched around i'm not sure. If it doesn't work report back and someone that does know can you help you.

    If you'd mention the problem, maybe some one could help.
    Have you looked at the API doc for the Robot class? It doesn't have many methods you can use.
    Do any of them look like they will do what you want?

    You should NOT remove the original questions for the thread. It makes the first answers not make sense.

    No, sorry. I'll rephrase it.
    Here's the source code.
    	public static void main(String...args) {
    	//while(true) {
            	try {
    			rob = new Robot();
            		rob.mouseMove(x, y);
            	        BufferedImage image = rob.createScreenCapture(new Rectangle(x, y, 335, 478));
            	        System.out.println(rob.getPixelColor(x, y));
            		rob.delay(800);
            	        rob.mousePress(InputEvent.BUTTON3_MASK);
            	        rob.mouseRelease(InputEvent.BUTTON3_MASK);
            	        rob.delay(800);
            	        y += 28;
            	        rob.mouseMove(x, y);
            	        System.out.println(inClient());
            	        rob.delay(800);
            	        rob.mousePress(InputEvent.BUTTON1_MASK);
            	        rob.mouseRelease(InputEvent.BUTTON1_MASK);
    		} catch (AWTException e) {
    		    e.printStackTrace();
    		}
    	  //}
    	}

    Now with the BufferedImage, what are the limits on this? What can I do with this? Is there any way I could find an image on the "Client" applet by the pixel colors or i guess by the BufferedImage?

    Sorry, that is a very general question. Can you be more specific?

    If the applet has a GUI being displayed and that is captured as an image from the screen, you can look at the pixels in the captured image. The BufferedImage class has methods for looking at the pixels of the image so you should be able to "find" the image if you know what the colors of the pixels in the image are.

    @First
    forgot it, i'll just read through it all.

    @Second
    static int x = 414;
    static int y = 315;

    image.getRGB(x, y);

    I keep getting an ArrayOutofBoundsException, I don't understand what coordinates it's asking for.

    What is the size of the image?
    Print out its height and width to see what its bounds are.
