    Default Clicking a coordinate on my GUI (Not Local Mouse Or Normal Robot.movemouse!)

    Basically I want to click a coordinate on my GUI, where ever the GUI is, say if the user moves the screen or what not.

    I do NOT want to use the crappy getpixelcolor.

    I also do not want to use the local mouse, is this possible & is it possible if you could post some example code for use?

    Thanks <3

    Huh? What exactly does that mean? What exactly have you tried? What does getPixelColor() have to do with this, and why is it "crappy"?

    Well, What I'm trying to say is I want to click a coordinate on my JFrame, not using the screen coordinates, and not using the local mouse.

    From what you posted, I do not understand what your goal is. Are you trying to get the color (or location) of a pixel anywhere on the user's screen (or JFrame) based upon where the user clicks? Please describe your goal in detail and what you've tried in detail, as this is pertinent to getting an answer other than a guess.

    It might just be me, but what are these non local mice whose actions you are detecting or tying to detect?

    Or is the OP trying to send a MouseEvent representing a click to some listener?

    Or is he trying to click an exact location in the gui regardless of where it is on screen?

    All of this is doable, we just have to know exactly what you're trying to do before we can help you.

    That's correct, but I do not want to use the local mouse, so it won't be annoying to users, when a program is controlling their own mouse.

    Can you explain what you expect the program to receive and to do when this clicking event happens?
