Mouse Hovering in Batch. So is there any batch mouse supporting utility that supports mouse hovering fast and also has a keyboard support?
The first time I read this request I had a problem somewhat difficult to explain.
I am not a native English speaker and sometimes I don't understand certain apparently common terms. In these cases I consult my Casio EX-word translator, but the translation of "Hover" verb provided by the Oxford English-Spanish dictionary indicated the action of an "helicopter", and not any computer-related term. I looked for "Hovering" in Google and apparently I got it: this term refers to the effect of change the text inside a selection box
when the mouse pointer pass over the selection box! Then, in order to see an example of the desired effect, I reviewed the other application mentioned here:
Yeah, cmdwiz can do that
Well, Cmdwiz meets almost all my needs.
However, at this point I was confused again: cmdwiz application does not
have any means to define selection boxes
!. How such an application "supports mouse hovering" if it does not support selection boxes?
Finally, I understood the puzzling point: you may write a Batch file that repeatedly review the position of the mouse pointer via an application designed to do so, and as soon as the mouse enters to a certain zone, you manually
change the text in such a zone to other color. You may use any method
to show the text in other color (even FINDSTR) as long as the mouse pointer enters and leaves the zone at a speed suitable for the show-text-in-color method. However, the possibility of write this Batch file
using a certain auxiliary program that returns the mouse pointer position certainly does NOT
means that the mouse supporting utility "supports mouse hovering"!
I added mouse hovering support to GetInput.exe auxiliary program. I invite you to review the description of this new feature at this post
