How to search a rectangular of certain color?

4 posts in this topic

Hi.

I want to find the coordinate of a rectangular of certain color,

for example, a green box.

Can someone point to the right direction on how to do this?

Thanks.

Hi Realm:

I know PixelSearch(), but it only searches the position of ONE single pixel, but I want to get the coordinate of an area of pixel.

For example get the position of a black box or a red circle.

Is there a way to do that?

thanks

You could use PixelChecksum(), but personally I prefer using PixelSearch() or PixelGetColor() and searching 4 or more points of reference.

In your case I might suggest PixelGetColor(). Find 4-5 points of the object you wish find, and use PixelGetColor() to find the pixel colors for those points. Generally I use 5 points, top,left / top,right / Bottom,left / bottom,right / center for boxes, and top / left / right / bottom / center for circles.

Again use PixelGetColor() to find the top,left location, than check the other 4 points to ensure you have the object. These 2 examples, will work in most instances, but not all.

This is how I use PixelGetColor() to find a box:

$xBegin=1 ;starting width point
$yBegin=1 ;starting depth point
$width=300; for a region 300 pixels wide
$depth=300; for a region 300 pixels in depth
$color=0x000000;color to search for, 0x000000=black
$oWidth=10;change to actual width of the black box object
$oDepth=10;change to actual depth of the black box object

$cWidth = Ceiling($oWidth/2);creates center width checkpoint
$cDepth = Ceiling($oDepth/2);creates center depth checkpoint
$oWidth -=1 ;adjusts for later calculations
$oDepth -=1 ;adjusts for later calculations
$x=$xBegin
$y=$yBegin
While $y<=$depth+$yBegin
    Do
        If PixelGetColor($x,$y)=$color Then ;locates the first black pixel, top left of box
            If PixelGetColor($x+$oWidth,$y)=$color Then ;checks if top right of box is present
                If PixelGetColor($x+$cWidth,$y+$cDepth)=$color Then ;checks if center point of box is present
                    If PixelGetColor($x,$y+$oDepth)=$color Then ;checks if bottom left of box is present
                        If PixelGetColor($x+$oWidth,$y+$oDepth)=$color Then ;checks if bottom right of box is present
                            MsgBox(0,"Box","Box was located at: " & @CRLF _
                                & "Left =" & $x & @CRLF _
                                & "Top ="& $y & @CRLF _
                                & "Right ="& $x+$oWidth & @CRLF _
                                & "Bottom =" & $y+$oDepth & @CRLF _
                                & "Center =" & $x+$cWidth &","& $y+$cDepth)
                            ExitLoop
                        EndIf
                    EndIf
                EndIf
            EndIf
        EndIf
        $x +=1
    Until $x>$width+$xBegin
    $y +=1
WEnd

This is how I use PixelGetColor() to find a circle Circle:

$xBegin=1 ;starting width point
$yBegin=1 ;starting depth point
$width=300; for a region 300 pixels wide
$depth=300; for a region 300 pixels in depth
$color=0xff0000;color to search for, 0xff0000=Red
$oDiameter=10;change to actual diameter of the object Circle

$cDepth = Floor($oDiameter/2);creates center depth checkpoint
$oDiameter -=1 ;adjusts for later calculations
$x=$xBegin
$y=$yBegin
While $y<=$depth+$yBegin
    Do
        If PixelGetColor($x,$y)=$color Then ;locates the first black pixel, top of circle
            $xx=$x
            Do ;This loop will check how wide top of circle is.
                $xx +=1
                $check=PixelGetColor($xx,$y)
            Until $check<>$color
            $x +=Ceiling(($xx-$x)/2);moves checkpoint to center of circle in width
            If PixelGetColor($x,$y+$cDepth)=$color Then ;checks if center point of circle is present
                If PixelGetColor($x-$cDepth,$y+$cDepth)=$color Then ;checks if left point of circle is present
                    If PixelGetColor($x+$oDiameter-$cDepth,$y+$cDepth)=$color Then ;checks if right point of circle is present
                        If PixelGetColor($x,$y+$oDiameter)=$color Then ;checks if bottom of circle is present
                            MsgBox(0,"Box","Box was located at: " & @CRLF _
                                & "Left =" & $x-$cDepth & @CRLF _
                                & "Top ="& $y & @CRLF _
                                & "Right ="& $x+$oDiameter-$cDepth & @CRLF _
                                & "Bottom =" & $y+$oDiameter & @CRLF _
                                & "Center =" & $x &","& $y+$cDepth)
                            ExitLoop
                        EndIf
                    EndIf
                EndIf
            EndIf
        EndIf
        $x +=1
    Until $x>$width+$xBegin
    $y +=1
WEnd

I took a moment to write these examples, from my actual code in a way I hope is best understood. There might be an error or 2, but I hope this points you in the right direction.
