Tool track mouse position and pixel color?

Recommended Posts


Hi Guys,

Is there any tool to track the mouse position and pixel color that the cursor points to?

Many thanks

You will need to use MouseGetPos and PixelGetColor in a loop - and a ToolTip might be the best way to display the result. :oops:

Give it a go and see how you get on - you know where we are if you run into difficulties. :bye:

I do not take credit for this and I don't know who to give credit to even though it is a simple GUI. Alt+P key to send info to clipboard.

Opt('GUIOnEventMode', '1')
HotKeySet('!p', '_Pause')

Global $Pause = False

$GUI = GUICreate('Pixel Finder Tool v1.0', '150', '40', '-1', '-1', '-1', '128')
GUISetOnEvent(-3, '_Exit')
GUISetFont ('9', '600', '', 'Arial')
$Input = GUICtrlCreateInput('', '0', '0', '150', '20', '1')
$Input2 = GUICtrlCreateInput('', '0', '20', '150', '20', '1')
GUICtrlSetState($Input, 128)
GUICtrlSetState($Input2, 128)
WinSetOnTop($GUI, '', '1')

While 1
If Not $Pause Then
$Pos = MouseGetPos()
$Pixel = PixelGetColor($Pos['0'], $Pos['1'])
$Pixel = '0x' & Hex($Pixel, '6')
GUICtrlSetData($Input, $Pixel)
GUICtrlSetData($Input2, "X: " & $Pos['0'] & "  Y: " & $Pos['1'])

Func _Pause()
If Not $Pause Then ClipPut(GUICtrlRead ($Input) & @CRLF & GUICtrlRead ($Input2))
$Pause = Not $Pause
EndFunc   ;==>_Pause

Func _Exit()
EndFunc   ;==>_Exit

Edit: Cleaned up the code a little.
