It works perfectly!

### Python: Glide, instead of move, mouse cursor from one point to another

I couldn't find a function in pywin32 to smoothly glide a pointer from one point to another, instead of simply "moving" the cursor by making it jump from its current position to a given position. I needed a way to make the mouse sort of "glide" from point A to point B at a seemingly natural pace, so here's my solution:

Have you considered using Bezier curves with random jitter to simulate more natural movement?

ReplyDeletewhere do you pass the itervals varible to the smooth_glide_mouse() function

ReplyDeletethe above example doesn't show it
