Feature Request---Virtual Input

Hi Andreas,

What would you think about adding some functions to Hollywood that could send key and mouse button events (presses) to the system's input queue---simulating actual keyboard and mouse button?

This kind of thing can already be done on Amigas using additional utilities such as:

It would be nice, though, to have such functions available in Hollywood to use across all platforms.

I realize that such features may not have very wide appeal and may be somewhat tricky to implement on all systems; so if it's more trouble than it's worth, just discard this request. :-)

Rather unlikely. On Amiga it would be easy to implement through input.device but on other systems it's much more difficult and it also might trigger certain security programs and I don't want Hollywood to end up on blacklists because it simulates mouse clicks etc. Malware often makes use of such functionalities..
