    Default I want to create an application to move the mouse pointer and give mouse clicks

    I want to make an Qt application from which i can control the mouse pointer and move it and give mouse clicks.

    I would really like to know if it is possible to move and give mouse clicks outside the working application... i.e desktop icons, files, folders etc...

    Someone pls help... this is kinda urgent for my current project....

    You need to use native API for this.

    You have to use WinAPI on Windows, Xlib/xcb on X11, etc.
