From XP to Win 7


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone

Well we have just had to buy a new laptop and my tool no longer works on it, I use pixelgetcolor to wait for something to happen then when it happens proceed to the next step

Until Not (PixelGetColor( 125, 209, $hWnd ) = 1015138)

It works fine on my XP pc but on a staff members win 7 machine it works "sometimes" we have set the win7 laptop to classic mode after a bit of research but its still doing this, anyone met this before?

Plz give more code

Its a ver big file and wont work on anyone elses pc as it looks at our database, the issue is the pixel that pixelgetcolor is looking for moves or changes colour all the time, I think its moving rather than not being the same color

Depending on your X and Y locations if your new latop has a higher resolution then the coordinates could be off.

Try using:

Opt("PixelCoordMode", 0) ;relative coords to the defined window

You might have to change the X and Y values to match the window coordinates of the pixal location.

Yeah I should have saiud, I do use that already at the top of the file

HotKeySet("{ESC}", "killit")

Opt('PixelCoordMode', 0)

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)

Any other ideas, i think its a win7 things that neads changing or setting

Need to revisit this issue, I have done a few simple tests by screen printing the area I am trying to get the colour from, on XP the colour is as my app is set

$coord = PixelSearch( 8, 65, 25, 95, 0xE6CBA0,0,0, $hWnd)
If Not @error Then
    MsgBox(0, "X and Y are:", $coord[0] & "," & $coord[1])
    MsgBox(0,"box name", "Cant find it " )

When I do a screen print on win7 the colours are different, we have tried all different themes on win7 and none of them make the colour match? how do I work around this, any ideas?

why dont you try

If @OSVersion = 'WIN_7' then
 PixelSearch( 8, 65, 25, 95, 0xsomething,0,0, $hWnd)
 PixelSearch( 8, 65, 25, 95, 0xE6CBA0,0,0, $hWnd)

look in help file for more info about @OSVersion

There are those that believe that the perfect heist lies in the preparation.
Some say that it’s all in the timing, seizing the right opportunity. Others even say it’s the ability to leave no trace behind, be a ghost.
