tool tips

6 posts in this topic

Hey guys (& gals),

Can I display the color of a pixel in a tool tip? Or is that reserved for message boxes? Like

$pixel = PixelSearch(1764, 1009, 1768, 1013, 0x6D1A1A, 20)

ToolTip("Color of $pixel is", 0, 0, $pixel[0], $pixel[1])

I know thats not the right format of tool tip but you get the idea. Problem I have had with message boxes is it brings the message box to the foreground. Tool tops have worked better for me, but maybe its just I haven't worked with message boxes enough. Thanks!

The value of variables can be displayed in tooltips.

edit: an example

$s = "String"
ToolTip("This is a tooltip " & $s, 0, 0)
Sleep(3000)

Ok so if got my tooltips working, if i want to add multiple pixel colors at one time, can I? The help file says use @CR for carriage return but every time i put it in there it says error. This is my tooltip, but where do i put the @CR or what ever i use to make it multiple lines showing multiple colors?

$pixel = PixelGetColor( 1764 , 1011 )

ToolTip("This color is" & Hex($pixel,6), 0, 0)

Sleep(3000)

Like this:

$pixel = PixelGetColor( 1764 , 1011 )

$pixel2 = PixelGetColor( 1764 , 1011 )

ToolTip("This color is" & Hex($pixel,6) @CR "And this color is" & Hex($pixel2,6), 0, 0)

Sleep(3000)

gives me an error, any ideas?
