Macro_question


Recommended Posts

Hello and good evening,

first of all: thank you for the brilliant new feature "create mouse macro". I realized the update yesterday and today I programmed all my hardware (mostly GF-moduls) to work with my LVLD767. It works all fine!

My question: is it poosible to create macros using cab or xml files. As I saw by now, all macros are basing on gau and dll. Or do I something wrong?

Thank you for short info and best regards

The mechanism isn't based on whether the gauge code is in C/C++/XML or whatever, but whether the way the mouse rectangles are defined is based on the structures in the gauge toolkit. It relies on being able to find the mouse rectangle table and locating the appropriate entry by its offset in that table. To do that they have to be pre-defined, not generated on-the-fly, and in the correct format. It is the offset which is recorded, plus a couple of check bytes for safety.

Incidentally I thought CAB files were simply a collection of compressed GAU files -- surely they aren't themselves another unique type?

Thank you for your answer,

I understand that it is actually not possible to save ALL Gauges as mouse macro, depending on the structures in the gauge… it's a pity..

Unfortunately, I don’t have any know-how in creating/editing gauge-files,

maybe a solution can be found in the future!

Best regards

Gunter
