Hi people.
How may I VISUALLY move the mouse cursor to a specific position via Selenium in VBA Excel?

If you are going to ask me that what does it matter to see visually the cursor, I should answer that it is because I am using Magnifier. I should move the mouse to any place to see that in the magnifier window. So I want every mouse actions in my Selenium project, able to see in magnifier window.

What I have tried:

I want to move the cursor to 5,10. But the mouse cursor doesn't move visually.
Sub VisuallyCursorMove()
    dim Driver as Selenium.ChromeDriver
    Set Driver = New Selenium.ChromeDriver
    Driver.Get ""
    Driver.Actions.MoveByOffset(5, 10).Perform
End Sub

You could put the mouse move into a loop and move it towards it's final destination in small increments

Would you please kindly explain?

I'm not familiar with Selenium but in principle it would be
Driver.Get etc
Dim i As Integer
For i = 1 To 10
Next<pre>I.e. only move the mouse by 1 point but do it 10 times in a loop so it's the equivalent of <pre>Driver.Actions.MoveByOffset(5,10).Perform

No. Doesn't work!
In selenium, the code does not move the shape of mouse individually.
So that was why I asked this question.
I hope someone helps me.

You need a "delay". Either "sleep" after each incremental move; or use a timer events for moving. You may have to "refresh" the display after each move. Protype by trying to move the mouse with arrow keys to see if you even know how to move the mouse.
