Screen capture x y z

Recommended Posts

Sorry for bad englisch i will use translator.

Hello, i have one problem, i need to make screen capture, but it's not normal screen capture function. In ScreenCapture UDF it's possible to say screen cordinates, but i need to make it automatic, example :

Let's say we have a picture of him as a man, but we want to program only took a picture of an item, this program is to shoot the image area in which you hit the square may be defined volume of 300 to 300, that is, for example, you press on your head man, is a program that takes a picture the place where you push the area 300 on 300th Is it possible? for example, using mousegetpos + a few other functions?

This is example code but i dont know how it works, i just found that at google.

#include <WinAPI.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <Misc.au3>
#include <ScreenCapture.au3>

Global $hDLL = DllOpen("User32.dll")

Global $Drag = False
Global $aCoord_Start
Global $aCoord_End
Global $iLeft, $iTop, $iRight, $iBottom
Global $sCapture = False

HotKeySet("{Esc}", "_Exit")

Global $pStub_MouseProc = DllCallbackRegister ("_Mouse_Handler", "int", "int;ptr;ptr")

Global $hHookMouse = _WinAPI_SetWindowsHookEx($WH_MOUSE_LL, DllCallbackGetPtr($pStub_MouseProc), _WinAPI_GetModuleHandle(0), 0)

While 1
    If $sCapture Then
        $sCapture = False
        _ScreenCapture_Capture(@ScriptDir & "\Capture.jpg", $iLeft, $iTop, $iRight, $iBottom)

Func _Mouse_Handler($nCode, $wParam, $lParam)
    If $nCode < 0 Then Return _WinAPI_CallNextHookEx($hHookMouse, $nCode, $wParam, $lParam)

    Switch $wParam
        Case $WM_LBUTTONDOWN
            $aCoord_Start = MouseGetPos()
        Case $WM_MOUSEMOVE
            If _IsPressed("01", $hDLL) Then $Drag = True
        Case $WM_LBUTTONUP
            $aCoord_End = MouseGetPos()

            If $Drag = True Then
                $Drag = False

                If $aCoord_Start[0] < $aCoord_End[0] Then
                    $iLeft = $aCoord_Start[0]
                    $iRight = $aCoord_End[0]
                    $iLeft = $aCoord_End[0]
                    $iRight = $aCoord_Start[0]

                If $aCoord_Start[1] < $aCoord_End[1] Then
                    $iTop = $aCoord_Start[1]
                    $iBottom = $aCoord_End[1]
                    $iTop = $aCoord_End[1]
                    $iBottom = $aCoord_Start[1]

                $sCapture = True
                Return 0

    Return _WinAPI_CallNextHookEx($hHookMouse, $nCode, $wParam, $lParam)

Func _Exit()

No need to use anything as complicated as that! :x

This does what I believe you want:

#Include <ScreenCapture.au3>
#include <Misc.au3>

$dll = DllOpen("user32.dll")

; Create exit mode
HotKeySet("{ESC}", "On_Exit")

While 1

    ; Wait for mouse click
    If _IsPressed("01", $dll) Then
        ; Get mouse position
        $aMPos = MouseGetPos()
        ; Determine coordinates to make a 300x300 square around the mouse position
        $iLeft   = $aMPos[0] - 150
        $iTop    = $aMPos[1] - 150
        $iRight  = $aMPos[0] + 150
        $iBottom = $aMPos[1] + 150
        ; Capture that area
        _ScreenCapture_Capture("My_Image.jpg", $iLeft, $iTop, $iRight, $iBottom)
        ; Wait until the mouse is released - or we take too many pictures!!!
        Until Not(_IsPressed("01", $dll))



Func On_Exit()

If it does not, or you have any questions, please come back. :P
