Get pixel color from bmp

Recommended Posts


I would like to know is there a command in AutoIT to do Bitmap.GetPixel? I can only found PixelGetColor() which is for onscreen pixel but not bmp file. I need to read the color directly without using methods like _GDIPlus_BitmapCreateFromFile() then Draw it on screen to read the pixel.

Here is the .Net method I'm refering:

Hi, something written quick and dirty...

#include <GDIPlus.au3>
#include <GDIPlusConstants.au3>
#include <ScreenCapture.au3>


$t = TimerInit()
$color=_GetPixelFromBMP("pic.jpg",100,100) ;Rückgabe: Farbe in BGR  Input: file, umd die Koordinaten x und y
ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $color = ' & $color & @crlf & '>Error code: ' & @error & @crlf) ;### Debug Console
$m = TimerDiff($t)
ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : time = ' & $m & @CRLF & '>Error code: ' & @error & @CRLF) ;### Debug Console

Func _GetPixelFromBMP($sImage,$x,$y );git die farbe an $x,$y einer 24bpp-bitmap aus
    Local $pbitmap, $Bmp
    Local $tBD, $iWidth, $iHeight, $iStride
    Local $pData, $color

    $pbitmap = _GDIPlus_ImageLoadFromFile($sImage)       ;bild laden
    If @error Then Return SetError(1, 2, 0)
    $tBD = _GDIPlus_BitmapLockBits($pbitmap, 0, 0, _GDIPlus_ImageGetWidth($pBitmap), _GDIPlus_ImageGetHeight($pBitmap), $GDIP_ILMREAD, $GDIP_PXF24RGB)
    If @error Then MsgBox(0, "", "Error locking region " & @error)
    $iWidth = DllStructGetData($tBD, 1)      ;breite der bitmap
    $iHeight = DllStructGetData($tBD, 2)    ;hoehe der bitmap
    $iStride = DllStructGetData($tBD, 3)    ;Erklärung : http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=106673&view=findpost&p=753169
    $pData = DllStructGetData($tBD, 5)      ;pointer auf die bitmapdaten
    $Bmp = DllStructCreate("byte[" & $iStride * $iHeight & "]", $pData)  ;struct gefüllt mit den Daten der Bitmap

    $position    = $istride * ($y - 1) + 3 * ($x-1)      ;Umrechnung der Position von x- und y- Koordinaten
    $substruct     = DllStructCreate("ubyte[3]", DllStructGetPtr($Bmp) + $position)  ;eine 3-byte struct an die position vom pixel schreiben
    $Color        = DllStructgetData($substruct, 1)  ;Daten aus der struct lesen

    _GDIPlus_BitmapUnlockBits($pbitmap, $tBD)
    return $color
EndFunc   ;==>_GetImagePixels

If you know the bpp of your bitmap, there is a much faster way. Open the file as binary and read the BGR-bytes(=colour) via stringmid(). This takes only a view milliseconds...

Thanks for the quick respond. I was also thinking of using Dllstruct, but I'm not familiar with it. I will try to study on it....ThankyouPosted Image
