It so happened that my boss wants to mimic the mouse movement of copying and pasting of certain text. For example i will copy the text in the screen coordinate 100,50 and paste in coordinate 100,60. It is possible in roborealm? if yes, how?

Thanks a lot.

We'd need more information about what application was being interacted with. We do have a mouse and keyboard module that can be used to move the mouse to a specific location, send a keystroke like CTRL-A, then CTRL-C, then move themouse to the next location and press CTRL-V. But this assumes a windows based keystroke that may or may not work on the application that you are suggesting. Also the location of the mouse will be very hardwired into the application such that if it moves even by 5 pixels the procedure will probably not work.

Here is our scenario: there is a web browser on the left side of the screen and there is a application on the right side. Now, the browser has labels, input textbox etc... what we want to accomplish is that we  want to copy certain text in the textbox or labels in the browser then paste it on the application textboxes also.

You might want to look at autoit (http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/) this allows you to do it within the computer instead of looking outside via a camera
