TouchTask examples?

Hi,

I looked at TouchTask to improve UI interactions for clicking at a certain location based on pixel color.
I installed it, that was the easy part, but how to use it? I checked the Tapatalk forum but could not find an example on how to use it.
Are there any examples of macros that use TouchTask? I learn well by example :).

You can invoke it using the locale/tasker plugin action. I'm afraid I'm not able to advise on how to use third party plugins as I don't have any knowledge beyond what you can find out yourself.

I tried to do that and got it.

Ah, cool example. Thanks, will try that.
I also thought to look at templates, I found at least one example already, but not so easy to understand, your example seems more straightforward!

Yeah, understanding with a template is a little complicated because it doesn't explain the plugin setting itself, need some trials to find out what you want. I can understand how to pass the x,y value for this plugin. It was a good opportunity for me:)

I am now just using a timed wait loop to counter slow UI updates to be sure the button is there already. Would be great if I can check the color of the button to know it is there....., can try tomorrow!

If you can check button surface text by touchtask tap action, it could use as a trigger as well. So you don't need to make timer base loop. It might be better to check a app button text.
It is an example to tap a button every 30 second checking the sequence position. When you tap a button manually, Touchtask trigger detect it and progress the sequence position.
