Control mouse and keyboard? Search screen for specific color

Anyone have any suggestions for the commands to control the mouse and keyboard?

Also wondering if there is a way to search the screen and use something like an "eyedropper" to check the color

Re: Connect to MySQL works on Mac standalone and not on PC

I had a friend with a mac download this and the application doesn't work on macs either. Apparently the application is only connecting or attempting to connect on the computer it was made on.

Re: Connect to MySQL works on Mac standalone and not on PC

Ok windows firewall seems like it could be the problem. As a side note current version isn't signed as a verified publisher and Windows firewall prevented one of my friends from downloading it (didn't even give him an option). Can I please ask what you mean by check DB connection parameters?

Re: Database query help PLEASE

I replaced the content I am actually trying to use with a gibberish paragraph, which was more characters. It works with a standard paragraph so I imagine its something to do with all the ^ signs or ^false^ because thats where it cuts out.

Easy way to fill in combo box, option menu, pop up menu, dro

I can successfully create these by typing the choice into the property inspector and then using switch statements inside the code.
