My mistake this is an example of what I've been using:

to controlfire
tto [t1 t2]
make  "com ascii readchar
if :com = 37 [seth 270 fd 5]
if :com = 39 [seth 90 fd 5]
if :com = 32 [tto "t2 seth 0 st repeat 45[fd 7 wait .5] test]

As you can see ascii character 37 relates to the left arrow
39 to the right arrow and 32 to the space bar. Can I use an ascii number
for the left mouse click?


You can use OnClick events. For example, the OnClick events of a background color, like in the project I mentioned


Or the OnClick event of a turtle that is always beneath the mouse, like in the project attached.
