Using new BotMouseListener class

Recommended Posts

Hey @Alek

When OSbot updated to 2.5 some API changes were made to implementing a mouse listener. As the title suggest, how do you use the new class BotMouseListener? Specifically what does the API doc mean when  

checkMouseEvent(java.awt.event.MouseEvent e)

 states: 

Use this method in place of mouseClicked(MouseEvent), mousePressed(MouseEvent), mouseReleased(MouseEvent).

 

Before 2.5 I was using a mouse listener to have a draggable paint:

onStart(){
	this.bot.addMouseListener(this); //method doesnt exist anymore	
	this.bot.getCanvas().addMouseMotionListener(this); //marked as deprecated
}

@Override
    public void mouseClicked(MouseEvent e) {
        //not used
    }

    @Override
    public void mousePressed(MouseEvent e) {
        Point clickPt = e.getPoint();
        if(paintArea.contains(clickPt)){
            movingPaint = true;
            xOffset = clickPt.x - paintArea.x;
            yOffset = clickPt.y - paintArea.y;
        }
    }

    @Override
    public void mouseReleased(MouseEvent e) {
        movingPaint = false;
        xOffset = 0;
        yOffset = 0;
    }

    @Override
    public void mouseEntered(MouseEvent e) {
        //not used
    }

    @Override
    public void mouseExited(MouseEvent e) {
        //not used
    }


    @Override
    public void mouseDragged(MouseEvent e) {
        if(movingPaint){
            Point mousePos = e.getPoint();
            paintArea.x = mousePos.x - xOffset;
            paintArea.y = mousePos.y - yOffset;
        }
    }

    @Override
    public void mouseMoved(MouseEvent e) {
        //not used
    }

Thanks.

You can still override motion events in BotMouseListener subclasses

You use checkMouseEvent as a sort of multiplexer like so:

public void checkMouseEvent(MouseEvent e) {
	switch(e.getID()) {
		case MouseEvent.MOUSE_PRESSED:
			//Code
			break;
		case MouseEvent.MOUSE_RELEASED:
			//Code
			break;
		case MouseEvent.MOUSE_CLICKED:
			//Code
			break;
	}
}

But remember to consume the events that you process, if you don't want them to be propagated

Thanks, I got it working again. It took me a while to realize that Mouse dragged is not supposed to be in checkMouseEvent(MouseEvent). 

public void checkMouseEvent(MouseEvent e) {
	switch(e.getID()) {
		case MouseEvent.MOUSE_DRAGGED:
			//This should not be here, Mouse dragged needs be its own seperate overridden method. 
			break;
        ....
		
	}
}

Makes sense too as dragged likely needs to be "listened" differently than a press or release.
