Mouse Clicks in WoW

Suppose you want to left click in two WoW windows at the same time. You would write your hotkey like this:


<Hotkey LButton>
    <SendWinM wow1>
        <ClickMouse LButton>
    <SendWinM wow2>
        <ClickMouse LButton>

When you press the left button, this hotkey will click the same spot in both windows at the same time, even if the windows are different sizes.

But there's a problem. The hotkey will get triggered every time you press the left button. Most of the time you want the left button to work normally. You need some way to control this behavior so it only happens when you want it to.

One way to accomplish this is by rewriting the hotkey so it only happens if you hold down a certain key at the same time as you press the button.. Suppose you decide to use the Oem3 key for this purpose. (That's the key in the upper left corner of the keyboard.) You need to define that key as a custom modifier and then include it as part of the hotkey trigger.


<UseKeyAsModifier Oem3>

<Hotkey Oem3 LButton>
    <SendWinM wow1>
        <ClickMouse LButton>
    <SendWinM wow2>
        <ClickMouse LButton>

Adjustment of ClickMouse Delays

ClickMouse should work with WoW every time you press the hotkey. If it doesn't, that's a sign that you need to raise ClickMouse Delays on the Settings Panel of the targeted PC. For instructions, see "Adjustment of ClickMouse Delays" on this page.


A warning about delays

By default, ClickMouse pauses very briefly before and after it clicks to make sure the target window has time to notice the cursor's new location. The length of this pause is determined by ClickMouse Delays on the Settings Panel.

These pauses are performed purely for technical reasons, and normally they are so short that they have no effect on game play.

Some people think these delays may violate Blizzard's rules. In case you're concerned, you can set these numbers to 0 0 (zero zero). This will eliminate the delays. Unfortunately it may also stop ClickMouse from working properly.



A warning about predefined X Y coordinates

ClickMouse allows you to make hotkeys that click on predefined X Y coordinates. This probably violates Blizzard's rules. You should use ClickMouse only in ways that copy the location of the mouse to other windows or PCs.

These pauses are performed purely for technical reasons, and normally they are so short that they have no effect on game play.

Some people think these delays may violate Blizzard's rules. In case you're concerned, you can set these numbers to 0 0 (zero zero). This will eliminate the delays. Unfortunately it may also stop ClickMouse from working properly.
