Here is the deal.

This small script finds the windows calculator process.

Then finds the handle of the F-E button on the Scientific Calculator.

Then it is supposed to find a "Pink" pixel on the button.

It does not find a pixel at all on the button.?. Can anyone explain whats wrong?

AutoItSetOption("PixelCoordMode", 2)
If ProcessExists("calc.exe") Then
    MsgBox(0, "process Found", "continue")
EndIf
$handle = ControlGetHandle("Calculator", "", "[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:22]")
If Not @error Then
    MsgBox(0, "found", "found button F-E")
EndIf
$coord = PixelSearch(0, 0, 31, 24, 0xFF6DF4, 0, 0, $handle)
If Not @error Then
    MsgBox(0, "X and Y of Button F-E:", $coord[0] & "," & $coord[1])
EndIf
Exit (0)

Now if i do it like this it returns a 1 on both message boxes indicating the pixel was found? Other wise "True" WTH?

AutoItSetOption("PixelCoordMode", 2)
$cal = "Calculator"
$button = "[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:22]"
If ProcessExists("calc.exe") Then
    MsgBox(0, "process Found", "continue")
EndIf
$handle = ControlGetHandle($cal, "", $button)
If Not @error Then
    MsgBox(0, "found", "found button F-E")
EndIf
$coord = PixelSearch(0, 0, 31, 24, 0xFF6DF4, 0, 0, $button)
MsgBox(0, "Test:", $coord)
If Not @error Then
    MsgBox(0, "Test", $coord)
EndIf
Exit (0)

From the Help file under PixelSearch()

Success: Returns a two-element array of pixel's coordinates. (Array[0] = x, Array[1] = y).

$coord = PixelSearch(0, 0, 31, 24, 0xFF6DF4, 0, 0, $button)
;MsgBox(0, "Test:", $coord) ;as soon as you click OK the error level ia reset causing the next line to fail
If Not @error Then
    MsgBox(0, "Test", "X = " & $coord[0] & @CRLF & "Y = " & $coord[1])
EndIf

Do you just need the position of the F-E Button? If so try ControlGetPos instead of pixel search.

$coord = ControlGetPos("Calculator", "", "[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:22]")
If Not @error Then
    MsgBox(0, "X and Y of Button F-E:", $coord[0] & "," & $coord[1])
EndIf

No,

Trying to detect a pixel on the button. Not trying to target the control to give it a press.

Pixelsearch is returning 1 because the pixel is detected.

PixelGetColor will return coords of the color on the button.

So problem solved.
