Mouse

Mouse.click()

Description

Sends a momentary click to the computer at the location of the cursor. This is the same as pressing and immediately releasing the mouse button.

Mouse.click() defaults to the left mouse button.

WARNING: When you use the Mouse.click() command, the Arduino takes over your mouse! Make sure you have control before you use the command. A pushbutton to toggle the mouse control state is effective.
