Image review tool

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi there..

I want to work on a image review tool. The basic idea of this tool is to review some GUI applications (developed in any language) and give comments to the developer with reference to the part of the GUI, I am making comment on. The final report with comments needs to be in MS Excel.

My idea is first run the application under review and get the GUI. Then using AutoIT place a transperant layer over it (could be on whole of the desktop size also) then mark a rectangle with a cross mouse icon on interested area, get the image of that area from the GUI beneath the transparent layer. After that get a text box or something where I can put down my comment about the croped area. Finally save those comments and croped images in excel file.

My questions are:

1. Is it possible to get a transparent layer over the GUI using Autoit?

2. Where to find some examples to start with?

3. How do I get the marked image from the desktop?

Thanks in advance

      Loading window not closing and not staying on top of main window
      By cookiemonster
      Hi,
      I have a main window with one button, when i press that button it brings up a loading screen, but I have two problems with the loading screen at the moment:
      1) Once I have pressed the button, if i open something else full screen over this autoit project (eg: chrome), then on my task bar click on the autoit project to bring it up to the front, the loading screen does not stay on top of the main window, I tried using $WS_EX_TOPMOST but this makes the loading screen stay on top of all windows, I only want it to stay on top of $Main (my main window GUI)
      2) Once the loading screen has been updated to 100%, it should sleep for a further two seconds then close, but at the moment after that 2 seconds, it goes back down to 25% instead of $LoadingWindow being deleted.
      Has anyone got any thoughts or suggestions?

      Copying selected data from GUI Edit
      By Katie_Deely
      Hey
       
      I have a GUI with an edit-field and a button.
      First I write some text into the edit-field and select a part of it. After that I press the button, and the selection is edited.
      How would I do that, though? When the text is selected and I press the button, it's unselected before the button actually raises an event.

      GUI problem with While loop and buttons
      By Altor
      Hi all
      My problem is that I have no way to work with buttons in a while loop
      When i run the form i can exit well clicking a close main window and olso if i click in a exit button but if i start the apllication whith a Start button  execute a loop for view a random numbers and then i can't stop the rogram and i can't not exit with a Exit button.
      I think the problem is in the use of events but i can not find the solution....
      Thank's to all
      The exemple is this:
      #include <StaticConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #Include <GuiButton.au3> Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1) $random_numbers = GUICreate("Random numbers",351,171,-1,-1,-1,-1) GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "close") $lavel_number = GUICtrlCreateLabel("",117,36,98,26,BitOr($SS_CENTER,$SS_CENTERIMAGE),$WS_EX_STATICEDGE) GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1,"0xFFFFFF") $start = GUICtrlCreateButton("Start",34,95,100,30,-1,-1) GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1,"start") $stop = GUICtrlCreateButton("Pause",182,95,100,30,-1,-1) GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1,"pause") $exit = GUICtrlCreateButton("Exit",112,136,100,30,-1,-1) GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1,"close") GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While 1 Sleep (50) Wend Func start() While 1 Sleep(100) Local $a = Random(1,10,1) GUICtrlSetData($lavel_number,$a) WEnd EndFunc Func pause() EndFunc func close() exit EndFunc
