  1. I'm trying to assign a faint text in the background to an input field that disappears after the input has started. This should have a certain color such as gray.
  2. Hey there, i need your help guys. I am working in the QA department of my company. A little part of or software produces hints (like little popups) which needs to be tested every release. I wrote scripts to trigger those hints and i also implemented the imagesearch.dll to find those hints on the screen. My goal now is it to let the machine work over night, so when i come back to work i only get a report which says 130/140 hints were found successfully. This already works, aslong as my pc is not locked, but i want/need to lock my pc because of security concerns. My general question. I
  3. Hi, I saw a couple topics about both mousedrag and imagesearch in background or minimized window, but none of them has the solution, and they were old topics. So I wanted to ask whether there is a way to mouse drag without the cursor to move, (I want to use mouse when mousedrag is working on a window). I don't know whether I can mix ControlMove with some other stuff or any other way? And also for the image search, is there any way to search for image (or pixel) in a background or minimized window? I thought maybe there is a au3 or dll or ... file for doing this. Another que
  4. Good morning, I have been thinking about trying to make my Autoit script run in the background. I found out today that it is impossible due to the UIA and mouseclick functions that I use. However, while reading other posts about running Autoit scripts in the background I saw a reply mentioning how a script like mine might be able to run on a VM while still giving me the ability to work on my Host OS. Can someone confirm this? Here is a link to the thread where I saw VM mentioned. the person who mentioned it was @ViciousXUSMC
  5. Hi, I am stuck on a GUI problem and would like your help to solve it. I am trying to automate the SoundWire Server app to match my current system volume level while it is minimized to the notification area (so no clicking or stealing focus), I can already get the handle and alter the tracker position by sending a WM_SETPOS message, but somehow the actual volume is not changed: I think I need to do something else to trigger the event handler for the value change and propagate it correctly. This is the control summary from Au3 info: >>>> Window <<<< T
  6. HELLO GUYS I'm a work on a background see and click bot project I can complete it if your help me (using imagesearch , gdi+ and fastfind)
  7. When we run our exe from any service or through any background process, it won't interact with the applications running in the foreground, I mean launched when the user is logged in or in GUI mode. Let's say, the onedrive sync app can't be detected from the exe we created and running it in background. I tried both options below. Any Idea how to interact with foreground processes using AuotIT code. Other than telling to launch the exe also in foreground.

  10. Hello there, as I used this function in a lot of projects, I might as well share it It gets a color value from a background (or foreground of course) window by using a combination of WinAPI.au3 and GDIPlus.au3 (might as well be replaced with https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/dd144909(v=vs.85).aspx which should work too and is maybe a bit faster, as it wouldn't need to create an extra GDIPlus Bitmap). Long story short; here is the function: ;===============================================================================================================================
  11. I took a script written by Beege, optimized the code, and removed the global variables. Its one function, reliable, and very easy to use or modify to your needs. I decided to post it because I found it very hard to find a reliable way to get the cpu percentage of a given process. I know that there are a few different methods but I deem WMI unreliable and everything I tried before optimizing this function was to slow i.e. freezing when other CPU intensive processes were active. When monitoring a potentially CPU intensive process, I found it necessary to increase the script's priority otherwis
  12. I'm trying to make a desktop wallpaper application with video support. But stuck at z-order. Any suggestions? How to put autoit window before desktop listview? I'm currently attaching window to the WorkerW. also tried the $HWND_BOTTOM const of _WinAPI_SetWindowPos but when i apply this, win goes invisible. no luck yet any help will be appreciated
  13. Hello I want to display a GUI with different background color to each part ex: upper part of my GUI window showed with white background , the lower part where there are some buttons showed with gray background. How I can do that without using colored pictures Thanks for any help
  14. I have a program that has a large label acting as a count down timer. I have set the background color of the label to $GUI_BKCOLOR_TRANSPARENT. This program has a picture for a background. In the below example the gui's background color is set to yellow. Occasionally when the timer updates you can see the yellow background color in the shape of the label. i have looked at many posts about blinking labels, but the all appear to find a way around the blinking problem instead of fixing it and none of them use a background picture. Does anyone know how this problem can be fixed?

  18. How can I search for a certain color in a background or masked window by other windows( no minimized ), and get the color's relative window's coordinates ?? Is it possible ? I appreciate any help....
  19. These are 2 useful examples on how to change the color of a GUI background. They are made by a user named ReaperX from another forum, not Autoit and i didn't ask his permission. Can't tell the forum, maybe it breaks this forums rules. 1) A Sample GUI. It Just Uses 3 Radio Buttons and You Choose One to Change the GUI BG Color to. include <GUIConstants.au3> MainGUI() Func MainGUI() GUICreate("ReaperX's Test GUI") $file = GUICtrlCreateMenu("File") $file_notepad = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Open Notepad", $file) $file_computer = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Open My Computer", $file
  20. Hi. Is it possible to set the background color of the chcecked (not selected) item (_GUICtrlListView, $LVS_EX_CHECKBOXES) ?
  21. Subtitle pretty much says it. This program darkens the screen except for the active window with options accessible through a convenient tray icon. Other options are supported as well, including: active window-change fading controlcustom darkening color (instead of default black)background image choice (faded image over background windows. weird, but ok.)etc...Obligatory Screenshot: Download: WindowDarken.zip (source) Off-topic notes: I have no clue if there are other programs that do something similar, nor did I really check. I didn't really check the forum thoroughly either to see if some
