Mouse click without releasing for x seconds

Post by jpinto » Wed Apr 26, 2017 8:19 am

Hello everyone,

does anyone knows if it is possible to record a mouse click without button release, for a certain time?
I have a .NET application with a button that should be pressed for a couple of seconds to activate a function. A simple click (or double-click) doesn't activate it.

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks.

Hi,

I don't think you can record it. But you can record a simple mouse click/double click and then replace it with manually added Mouse down...Delay...Mouse Up actions. Hope this helps?
