Continuous monitoring of the color of a single pixel...

4 posts in this topic

So, basically, I'm trying to create a script that will continuously check the color of a single pixel, and when it changes to a specific color, send Ctrl + Shift + Alt + Q all at once. This is what I've got so far:

$Answer = MsgBox(4, "Failsafe", "Run?")
If $Answer = 6 Then
    PixelS()
Else
    Exit
EndIf
 
Func PixelS()
    While 1
        Sleep(200)
        $Pix1 = PixelGetColor(551, 579)
        If Hex($Pix1) = 'FFFF00' Then
            Send("^+!q")
            MsgBox(0, "Fail saved", Hex($Pix1))
        Else
            ContinueLoop
        EndIf
    WEnd
EndFunc

The msgbox output is just for my own testing purposes. Anyway, the script doesn't seem to actually do anything. Even when I start the script with the specified pixel already the required color, no message box pops up and the keys aren't sent. What am I doing wrong?

You probably don't need the ContinueLoop statement as While 1 is Infinite anyway. Secondly PixelGetColor returns a decimal value which is NOT an interger which is what Hex converts. Basically you have to do some math.


My UDFs are generally for me. If they aren't updated for a while, it means I'm not using them myself. As soon as I start using them again, they'll get updated.

DeusImperoMachina,

You need to specify the number of characters in the Hex value to be returned - if not you get a default of 8/16 and you are comparing to 6. :oops:

Try this: :D

If Hex($Pix1, 6) = 'FFFF00' Then

rcmaehl,

Secondly PixelGetColor returns a decimal value which is NOT an interger

A decimal value can well be an integer - and PixelGetColor is very unlikely to return a fractional value! :)

Why not do a bit of testing before posting incorrect information? :rip:

Ah, thanks a ton, using the decimal form of the color solved it! :D

Edit: Oh, seems I missed a post. That's even better, now I don't have to use a Hex>Decimal converter whenever I want to make a new one, hehe. Thanks for the help guys.
