Color change alarm script?

4 posts in this topic

I'm looking for a script that will play an alarm when there is a certain color recognized at whatever coordinates are marked in a window.

I.e.

Aim chat window -

My buddy sends me a message, lettering is black. Next line buddy sends a red lettered message, my CPU plays an alarm sound. (second lines coordinates would be marked)

Is this possible?

Sorry if this is a common question - search wasn't helping me out.

Yobear,

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. ;)

I'm looking for a script

That is not exactly how it works here. We want you to have a go at coding something yourself first - we will help out when you run into problems. Think of the old saying: "Give a man a fish, you feed him for a day; give a man a net and you feed him forever". We try to be net makers and repairers, not fishmongers. :evil:

Some pointers to help you get started. Look in the Help file for:

WingetPos - this wil help you locate your chat window.

PixelGetColor and PixelSearch - they will help you identify when colours change in the window.

If...Then - this will let you choose what to do if the colour is or is not found

While...WEnd - this will let you wait until you get a colour change

SoundPlay - this will play your alarm sound

Have fun! You know where we are if you have problems. :evil:

Aye, sorry mate, I realize now my post came off as a "do it for me" type request. I was in fact looking for a few pointers as to where to get started, and you've hit all those for me! Thanks again mate.
