    Default Automating a Mouse Event

    Hi im working on a program that does certain things when you get to a checkpoint. the things that it would do is mouse activated events. i need to know how i can apply mouse down events in a custom frame i would need to know how i can apply a mouse down event automated when needed. kinda like a macro but doesn't control your mouse. for example

    step 1: locate x && y (input x && y integer)
    step 2: preform invisible mouse click @ (x && y)

    so you clicked on something with out the need of pointing a mouse at the area nor having the mouse move their and still have control over your mouse.

    Code snippet would be very nice.... APIs on mouse events would be nice Help would be very nice...
    would you please help me?

    See MouseInfo API (and indirectly, PointerInfo API) to get the mouse's current location.
    See Java Robot API to control the mouse/keyboard.
