    I have a bunch of clicks I need to do, all in the same order. It requires scrolling a window and a time interval (for things to load). Is there any program I could use to "record" the movement of my cursor to have it repeated over and over?

    Thanks in advance.

    I have the same problems sometimes with website development.

    Would be a good program, but i doubt there is anything out there right now.
    good luck :cool:

    I don't know could you?

    I've never done a script before, plus this sort of thing seems kind of hard to program if its my first try.

    I've seen Windows programs that automate the mouse. I did a quick search and found some. Anyone know of any for the Mac?

    When Tiger comes out, Automator will do that job for you. I can't wait for that program

    You can use AppleScript and create a "User Interface Script" that will click specified buttons in any order you like, or even at random. You can also insert a delay.

    iChat or PM me if you need/want help.
