I found my old CPointer program lying around and discovered that I never
uploaded it to Aminet after all these years and it also works under Amiga OS4.
So I decided to release it for all to enjoy.

CPointer 2.4 is a simple utility that will centre the mouse pointer on boot-up
much more.

Runs on 68K Amigas as well as PPC OS 4.x machines. I have not tested Cpointer on


- Will centre the mouse pointer on any size screen.(Default)
- User defined co-ordinates can be set.
- Left mousebutton can be activated with delay (screen activation)
- Double-click can be emulated.
- Works with native screenmodes as well as Graphics cards.


****  CPointer is CLI only. It will promptly crash if try to run  ****
****                      it from Workbench !!                    ****



XPOS  = X position on screen   > if the X and Y values are omittied, the pointer
YPOS  = Y position on screen   > is centred by defualt.                         

DELAY = fakes a left mouse button click after so many ticks. (50 ticks = 1
second. 60 if NTSC)
        Good for activating a screen like WorkBench after boot. 0-600 allowed (0
to 10 seconds)

DCLICK  Will execute a double click. This could be used to have the pointer
        double-click on an icon to run it. Use your imagination :)


1) Dump CPointer to your C: dir.

2) Fire up your favorite text editor.

3) Now, just before LoadWB add this line:


Run >NIL: C:CPointer XPOS=<value> YPOS=<value> DELAY=<delay> DCLICK (see below
for explanation)


EndCli >NIL:



Run >NIL: C:CPointer ; This will centre the mouse pointer on the current screen

Run >NIL: C:CPointer DELAY=0  ; This will centre the mouse pointer aswell as
activate the current screen.

Run >NIL: C:CPointer DELAY=250 ; Centre Mouse Pointer on screen. Fake a left
mouse button click 4.5 seconds
                                 after CPointer is run (activates screen)

Run >NIL: C:CPointer XPOS=100 YPOS=200 DELAY=250 DCLICK ; Position mouse at
100,200 and fake a
                                                          double click after 4.5

You get the idea......

Now on every boot, your mouse pointer will be centred on your Workbench
Screen. Put over an icon or icon bay. Run a program through it's icon.
Do what you will. :)
