Virtualbox pixelsearch

23 posts in this topic

Hello, i'm trying to use functions PixelGetColor() and PixelSearch() under virtualbox and they give me colors behind the active window (like it is transparent). Without virtualbox script works perfectly. I tried using options MouseCoordMode and PixelCoordMode but it doesnt make any difference.

Thanks in advance.

Hi, kuzmich. Are you running your script in the VirtualBox VM, or are you running it from your host machine and attempting to capture the pixel in the VM?

Well, that's what I'm trying to figure =)

But if you meant if there are any differences - there are none, even OS on the virtual machine is the same.

He's asking you why aren't you running the script on the VM instead of the host machine?

Maybe I am reading his response to my question incorrectly, but I thought he stated he is running it on the vm...

You are correct, MPH, if that is the case my question was the same.

No, JLogan3o13 is right here.. I'm running script on VM, not on a host machine.

Hi, Kuzmich. At this point, the best thing you can do to help us help you is post your relevant code. I have a couple VirtualBox VMs I can try it out on.

For example, this little script.

#RequireAdmin
HotKeySet("{ESC}", "Terminate")
conf_color()
Func Terminate()
    Exit 0
EndFunc
Func conf_color()

While 1
  sleep(10)
  Local $pos = MouseGetPos()
  Local $temp_col = 0
  $temp_col = Hex(PixelGetColor($pos[0],$pos[1]))
  ToolTip(@CRLF & @CRLF & "C: " & $temp_col & @CRLF & @CRLF & "Press ESC to exit", 0, 0)
WEnd
EndFunc

P.S. It works correctly with pictures, mspaint, etc. But not with my Direct3D application.

kuzmich,

What exactly is "my Direct3D application"? :)
