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.
 

interested

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:

Couldn't you make a script?

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?

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.
